Last Kick at the Can 2017
Wednesday, December 20, 2017
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
(Original date: Friday, June 16, 2017)
Who should attend: Criminal lawyers, both crown and defence.
Learning level: Intermediate
For criminal law practitioners, the bulk of matters originating in the Provincial Court will remain in the Provincial Court unless a process such as a preliminary inquiry dictates otherwise. There are, however, situations where matters from the Provincial Court may move up to the Supreme Court — this is the domain of criminal chambers practice in Supreme Court.
This course is aimed to give you a solid grounding in the substantive and process elements of criminal chambers practice.
At this course you will learn:
- how to manage bail review—the law and the process
- how to manage bail in murder cases—the practical and legal considerations
- the current state of 90-day reviews—in a post-Jordan world
- how to avoid pitfalls and prepare good affidavit evidence
- valuable tips for managing affidavits in a variety of common contexts from bail reviews to summary conviction appeals
- how to effectively manage legal aid coverage in a range of fluid Supreme Court chambers contexts
- how to manage summary conviction appeals: from the law, to nuts and bolts procedure, to best practices
