    Recorded Seminar: Better Use of Visuals – Jennifer Brevorka and Peter Sankoff

    Recorded: 10 March 2023, 76 minutes

    They say a picture is worth 1000 words. But defence lawyers rarely pick up on this maxim, preferring to run trials with documentary evidence and oral submissions only. There are many advantages to including visuals in your written materials, and also in court. What are the rules governing their use, and how can they be deployed effectively? Find out in this exciting seminar.

Join him for an informative look at how to best prepare for a contested sentence hearing.

    Paul Moreau has focused his practice on criminal defence since 2001. He argues his cases both at the trial and appeal levels, appearing in all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada.

He is also a sessional instructor at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law, teaching Sentencing Law since 2017.

    Recorded Seminar: “So, You Want to Argue an Appeal? Part 1”

    Recorded: 13 January 2023, 94 minutes

    Making the jump from law school mooting to full on appellate work isn’t easy. There are so many aspects of the appeal process that cause difficulty for counsel making the transition. Appeals use a different language, and there are plenty of procedural complications.
    In this two-part seminar (September 29 is Part 2), designed for those new or relatively new to appeals, Peter Sankoff provides tips for making the transition seamlessly, with points on procedure, the writing of a factum, and oral appellate advocacy.
    This seminar focuses on basic procedures to be aware of (including the bail process), and important tips on writing a factum.
