May 13, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Explore topical legal issues related to drinking and drugged driving with Karen Jokinen, Peter Keen, and a panel of cross-national experts.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the 2018 repeal of driving provisions in the Criminal Code have significantly changed the Canadian justice system’s approach to impaired driving cases. Join us for a CPD-accredited webinar that will explore important legal developments, review relevant cases in context, and provide vital analysis, strategy, and tactical advice to help you navigate the complexities of driving offences in Canada.
