A criminal prosecution begins with the police. But how much power do they have? And what are the limits? How can the police effectively fight crime and, at the same time, respect Charter rights?

Detention, search, interrogation, disclosure and more are covered in this wide ranging programme with discussion, tips, and advice from leading Crown and defence counsel on how to effectively prosecute and defend matters where police conduct is in question. All this and senior judges from British Columbia and across the country participating to help guide you in dealing with what can be the most problematic areas of the criminal law.

And as ever, we will present our very popular Visual Fact Scenario raising issues that will be discussed throughout the programme. Can you guess the identity of The Queen of Clubs?

Join us for our annual educational feast which will contain professional ethics and practice management hours. Lunch and papers written especially for the programme are included. We promise you won’t regret it!
