Sexual assault presents unique challenges for both defence and prosecution. As the law evolves to reflect new understanding of the experiences of different complainants, practitioners must carefully balance the rights and defences of the accused with accommodations for complainants.
This crucial one-day course will explore the complex law dealing with sex-related crimes. You will receive an in-depth review of relevant evidence and practice from experts including a forensic toxicologist, forensic biologist, a forensic nurse examiner, and experienced counsel. Uniquely, in addition to a view from the Bench, you will also hear from a sexual assault victim who will give her perspective on the justice system and her experiences.
Criminal lawyers, both crown and defence at all levels of experience, along with law enforcement officers, are encouraged to attend this extensive and important course.
