From a select group of our esteemed authors, this exclusive series of insightful features will discuss the most pertinent topics of significance and the latest developments, and how they may impact Canadian criminal law and practice. Complimentary Content exclusive to this Practice Community Page is provided below.
The fifth feature of this series comes from M. Joyce DeWitt-Van Oosten, Q.C., Assistant Deputy Attorney General for the Criminal Justice Branch (B.C. Prosecution Service), and co-author of Working Manual of Criminal Law. Drawing on her extensive knowledge, know-how and experience in successful trial preparations, Joyce shares an example trial preparations checklist (PDF) on essential legal elements designed for use of criminal lawyers – both prosecution and defence – covering the fundamentals surrounding proof of the alleged crime, so they can step into court with confidence knowing that each and every one of these essential legal elements has been addressed during their trial preparations.
