A must-attend event for those practising in criminal law, exploring these important topics:  Dealing with the Crown, Jury Vetting and the right to silence. 

These materials will help you

  • Learn about the concept of jury vetting, gain a practical understanding of the Juries Act 1981, and discover what you as a practitioner could be doing differently to make the most out of available challenges.
  • Learn more about the right to silence, how to avoid pitfalls when running a trial, and what prosecutors and judges are allowed to say about your client saying nothing, with a focus on ss 32 and 33 of the Evidence Act 2006.
  • Gain a better understanding of how the Crown applies the Solicitor-General’s guidelines when making decisions on whether or not to prosecute and the impact of the specific guidelines for prosecutors on dealing with victims.

Intended audience

All lawyers practising in criminal law.

*As a result of the extensive nature of the Law Commission report, The Second Review of the Evidence Act 2006 – Te Arotake Tuarua i te Evidence Act 2006, and proposed changes, we will no longer be covering ‘Evidence Act changes – how they affect you’ and ‘Practical tips for plea instructions’.
