Webinar: Language Rights in Criminal Procedure

Published on May 6, 2022

The Alberta Crown Prosecution Service (ACPS) is providing an opportunity for the entire legal community in Canada, including Newfoundland and Labrador, to take stock of language rights in criminal proceedings.
Language rights are perhaps the most fundamental aspect of criminal procedure that is least thought of. Yet ignoring the right of the accused to a trial in the language of his or her choice can have devastating consequences for the administration of justice.

Join us at 3:30 p.m. Newfoundland time, 3:00 p.p. in most of Labrador this Friday, May 6, 2020 to find out why and what you can do in your profession to ensure that your practice is in compliance with the Criminal Code and the Supreme Court of Canada's guidelines.
