Learning level: All levels
Sexual assault presents unique challenges for both defence and prosecution. As the law evolves to reflect new understanding of the experiences of different complainants, practitioners must carefully balance the rights and defences of the accused with accommodations for complainants.
This crucial one-day course will explore the complex law related to sexual assault prosecutions, including issues related to the examination of witnesses, third-party records, witness accommodation, and sentencing.
Criminal lawyers, both Crown and defence at all levels of experience, along with law enforcement officers, are encouraged to attend this extensive and important course.
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). Please note: The CPD hours of the rebroadcast will either meet or exceed the CPD hours of the original live webinar course.
