Gladue Rights for Clients

Gladue Resources Developed for Indigenous Clients

If your client identifies as Indigenous and is being charged with a crime, Gladue principles must be applied in court. In many cases, your client may not know about their Gladue rights. These resources were developed to help explain those rights.
