Litigating the rights enshrined in the Charter has become increasingly more complicated and yet, more important than ever before. The admission or exclusion of a single piece of evidence during a criminal trial is often a game changer.

How best should counsel approach a Charter argument? When should they make it? What are some of the most significant cases in the Charter world and what has happened recently in Charter case law? What’s next? Some of the most experienced and well respected members of the judiciary and criminal bar will answer these questions and more.

The emphasis will be on the practical with a fact scenario, panels, papers and much more. Join us as we identify the ways in which Crown and defence cousnel can ensure their litigation of the Charter is much, much smarter.
