Law Conference Investigates Evidentiary Thresholds

October 31, 2019 — 

It was daunting, but they did it: Congratulations to Faculty Members, Staff and Student Volunteers who made last Saturday’s marathon conference run without a hitch, in particular, the instigators, Professor Richard Jochelson and Assistant Professor David Ireland. As Professor Darcy MacPherson noted earlier this week, the conference, titled Criminal Justice and Evidentiary Thresholds in Canada: the Last 10 Years “was a rousing success, with more than 100 attendees and more than a dozen presentations. Presenters came from both Canada and the US, and had topics as diverse as corporate criminal liability and psychiatric and psychological assessments of criminal defendants, and many topics in between.”

Starting at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, the conference wrapped up at 6:00 p.m.. The Keynote speaker was Kent Roach, Professor of Law and Prichard-Wilson Chair of Law and Public Policy at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. Details about the conference can be found in the program located online on the Robson Crim Blog.
