This session focusses on the role of the Crown in resolution discussions. Resolution discussions can range from a formal meeting between Crown and defence in a counsel pre-trial to an informal chat on the elevator. Knowing and understanding the limits and scope of what taking a particular position can mean. Is the Crown bound by a position taken in a pre-trial? Can the trial crown take a different position? What is the process for changing a position? What are the implications?
This session was held on February 8, 2012 and was lead by Matthew Geigen-Miller with Tim Wightman supervising.
