Seminar: Crown Witnesses and Character Evidence
$15.00 – $55.00
11am MST, Friday, 7 January 2022
In this seminar, Professor Sankoff will examine the rules governing the admission of character evidence adduced by the defence. Though bad character evidence tendered against the accused gets most of the attention, there are important things to know about how character evidence can be used FOR the accused. This seminar will examine when and how you can tender evidence about third party suspects, the victim or complainant and even the co-accused. It will also consider how bad character can be adduced against a testifying witness.
