Concise. Insightful. Comprehensive. In short, a Six-Minute program is the fast track to all the recent developments in criminal law. We capture a variety of perspectives by drawing from a pool of presenters, and each one gets to the point within minutes. You always receive materials that explore the topics in greater detail and take away practical tips and advice you might not get elsewhere. The half-day programs of our Six-Minute series make sure you’re up to the challenges of a busy legal practice whether you are a Crown or defence counsel.

  • Hear point-counterpoint on improper crown questioning 
  • Get an update on searches incidental to a lawful arrest
  • Learn about what's new in the law of hearsay evidence
  • Obtain an analysis of the latest cases on prior discreditable conduct
