Learning level: All levels

Regulated industries are most often regulated by criminal, quasi-criminal, and administrative sanctions. However, each enforcement branch requires counsel to practice in very different institutional and legal environments.

Often, defence counsel must defend persons accused of regulatory offences in parallel administrative proceedings. Conversely, defence counsel assisting a client during an investigation, review, audit, or other regulatory inquiry must be aware of when such a process might lead to a criminal or quasi-criminal prosecution. The practice is fraught with procedural, legal, and strategic peril.

This course will examine regulatory processes, their operation, and their implications for counsel who must handle proceedings in this dual-function context. The regulated industries covered in this program will include securities, forestry, mining, environmental protection, taxation, and workplace safety, among others.

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6 hours (this course will contain a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
