Your guide to mastering evidence at trial: from preparation to persuasion!
The CLEBC publication Introducing Evidence at Trial: A British Columbia Handbook made its debut in 2007 and has since become a trusted resource for criminal and civil litigators in BC. Join senior practitioners in this interactive course as you discuss, work through, and solve specially designed problems based on select topics from the handbook. The course will quickly bring you up to speed on the law relating to important principles of evidence, but will be focused on providing practice tips and advice on how to apply and argue the rules of evidence in a courtroom setting.

At this course you will learn...

  • the principles of three critical areas of the law of evidence: privilege, inconsistent statements, and similar fact
  • how to apply the laws of evidence in challenging factual contexts
  • how to deal with real and demonstrative evidence
  • practical pointers for managing evidence throughout the trial process
