This is originally a BC Paralegal Association (BCPA) event. This high-level course is a must for every paralegal to expand their knowledge and study the law.

We will walk through a criminal case and go over key considerations in a sexual assault claim, including some specific applications under the Criminal Code of Canada as it relates to third party records. We will also look at case law that address these issues.
Learn all about "the mechanics of running and maintaining a criminal file":
- client intake
- correspondence to Crown counsel
