34th Annual Criminal Law Conference

Anne Marie McElroy, and Samantha Robinson cover everything counsel needs to know about conditional sentence breach proceedings, from the initial arrest on the CSO breach and/or new offence(s), the bail stage, resolving the new charges or setting them for trial, and the conditional sentence breach hearing itself. Panelists review trial case law as well as the appellate jurisprudence from the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court of Canada.

The next program covers the importance of taking care of yourself to avoid burnout. The speaker will review work/life balance and wellness principles that counsel can apply to their own life and practice in an effort to reduce stress and encourage rest.
