Product description


Keep Current. Stay Informed. Be At Your Best in The Courtroom.
With the passing of Bill C-75, which became law on July 21, 2019, then September 19, 2019 and finally December 18, 2019 there have been significant changes to the substantive criminal law, which also affect practices and procedures before trial courts. The COVID-19 pandemic also saw significant changes to criminal practice procedure some which have been adopted or adapted going forward.

Whether you are a defense lawyer, crown counsel, judge or paralegal, this annual annotated publication is a necessary reference for understanding and working within the rules of practice that govern criminal proceedings at all three levels of court in Ontario: Ontario Court of Justice, Superior Court of Justice and Ontario Court of Appeal. The perfect companion to the Gold Code, this book provides the information on criminal practice which isn't found in any annotated Criminal Code.

      5) "Cases of note" rather than "cases of not"
