Learning level: All levels

The practice of criminal law in Canada continues to evolve on a number of different fronts reflecting the dynamic interplay of social trends, social science, technology, legislation, and law enforcement techniques. This unique and comprehensive one-day program will examine a number of special issues of current interest from the perspective of not only experienced criminal lawyers but also police officers and expert witnesses.

Please note: To assist with the presentation "Witness Accommodation Including Courthouse Dogs" there will be a courthouse dog in attendance.

At this course you will learn about...

  • current thinking on police interviewing strategies and techniques and their implications for criminal prosecutions
  • the emerging practice of courthouse dogs as an option to support witnesses in the courtroom  
  • the substantive and procedural issues raised by the presence of self-represented accused in the criminal justice system
  • the not-so-simple array of issues surrounding the when and how of Police Use of Force
  • the best practices for managing psychopaths and other personality disordered individuals that counsel is most likely to encounter in the witness box
