The Criminal Procedure Act 2011 (‘the Act’) means major changes for the everyday practice of Criminal Law. Practitioners need to analyse their cases and define the issues at an earlier stage, and the Courts’ focus will be on the early resolution of cases. This On Demand seminar offers practical help to practitioners about common issues which will arise, with perspectives from members of the Bar and the Bench.
Experienced barrister and lecturer Len Andersen presents an overview of the Act and its changes. He addresses key aspects of the Act, such as conferences, elections and what to expect, including looking at some challenging issues.
His Honour Judge Dawson, Jury Liaison Judge at the Auckland District Court, has been a member of the judiciary since 2003. His Honour comments on the key aspects of the Act and addresses frequently asked questions, providing practitioners with an insight into what the Courts’ approach will be.
Who should view?
This On Demand seminar is a must for all lawyers practising in any aspect of Criminal Law. A basic level of knowledge of existing criminal procedure will be assumed.
