In this session, senior Defence and Crown Counsel will share practical insights on how to prepare the client to testify in a criminal proceeding from first interaction to eve of trial. They will also address the risks and common Judicial critiques that can be anticipated, and provide practical advice on how to neutralize them. Defence counsel will also provide concrete thoughts on the ethical and professional limits that guide Defence Counsel in the process of preparing the accused to testify. In light of recent case-law, Crown and Defence Counsel will discuss the effects that certain approaches to preparation might have on the conduct of the trial itself.
