Concise. Insightful. Comprehensive. In short, this Six-Minute program is a fast track to recent developments in criminal law. We capture a variety of perspectives from judges, defence counsel and Crown prosecutors, and each one gets to the point within minutes. You will receive materials that explore the topics in greater detail, and take away practical tips and advice you might not get elsewhere.

  • What is the impact of the SCC ruling in Le on the exclusion of evidence under s.24(2)?
  • How does COVID-19 impact the assessment to grant or refuse bail​?​
  • How can you avoid LAWPRO claims in your criminal law practice?
  • How are the courts dealing with jury selection issues after Bill C-75?


This live webcast replay contains an online chat feature that allows you to view the previously broadcast program and interact, share ideas, and exchange comments with fellow registrants online.
