CRM 308

Criminal Courts in Canada

The focus of this course is on the structure and function of the criminal courts in Canada, with particular emphasis on the points of tension at various stages. Rather than being a course on the technical aspects of criminal prosecution, points of tension in the process will be considered through an analysis of a variety of topics, including pre-trial detention, sentencing, plea discussions and the wrongfully convicted.
