Criminal Defence Essentials

What we offer

Professor Sankoff’s Criminal Defence Essentials Annual Pass is the best way for you to get affordable access to the latest developments for criminal litigators, and ongoing CLE. One payment gets you access to every seminar we offer in the calendar year (13 seminars in all), at almost 20% off our regular seminar prices. As always, recordings of the seminars come free to all attendees, and can be watched at any time – forever. It also saves you the trouble of registering for each seminar on a monthly basis.

Our Criminal Defence Essentials package is more than just seminars. Annual Pass holders get priority access to all of our free events (like the free advocacy seminar with Justice Russell Brown we held in May 2021), and a host of additional products, including:

For a single purchase, you get access to a year’s worth of material

  • Thirteen top notch seminars to attend and/or watch at your convenience
  • 45-50 video case alerts giving you analysis on THE most important jurisprudential developments
  • 8-10 “Cheat Sheets” providing written research to help you on the fly
  • A monthly E-Zine, "The Golden Thread", profiling the latest news in criminal law and giving you Professor Sankoff’s thoughts on big cases, statutory changes and emerging trends. We are planning on producing nine editions per year.
