Non-party disclosure can be a powerful tool in a Criminal lawyer’s armoury, but it is used less often than it could, or should, be. This seminar will explore the ins and outs of the application, including the legal basis, timing, procedure, hearing, outcome, utility and key case law.

With non-party, prosecution and defence perspectives and judicial insights, this session is a must-attend for all Criminal practitioners including youth advocates.

These materials will help you:

  • Receive guidance on when and how non-party disclosure can be pursued.
  • Gain a better understanding of the need for and definition of ‘relevance’ in relation to an application, and implications for the Court/progression of a case.
  • Gain insights into the use of non-party disclosure by the Police and the Crown’s position on defence applications.
  • Receive practical guidance on how defence can use the information once disclosure is obtained/implications for case preparation. 

Intended audience:

All those practising in Criminal law including youth advocates.
