Our two experts, Carolynn Conron, a defence lawyer and Steve Keyes, a licensed paralegal, share key information to navigate provincial offences including offences under the Highway Traffic Act and “win” or reduce the penalty for your clients.

The presentation includes information on: new stunt driving legislation, increased penalties for stunt driving, the suspension of limitation periods has ended and virtually all proceedings are being held online via Zoom.  It is important to check with your local court house for the latest practice directions or information as it continues to change rapidly.  

Our speakers review the following: types of offences, procedural issues, preparation, trial strategy, sentencing, costs and appeals and Rules of Professional Conduct applicable to POA’s.

This is an excellent program for students, new calls, paralegals and junior lawyers who are new to provincial offences, or would like a refresher.
