Seminar: “Third Party Record Applications” with Peter Sankoff and Heather Gagnier
$15.00 – $55.00
11am MST, Friday, 8 April 2022
There’s information out there, and your client needs it to defend themselves. How can you get it when the Crown doesn’t have it and won’t help you get it? This seminar, led by Professor Sankoff and Heather Gagnier of Bottos Law Group will explore the limits of Crown disclosure (when can you force the Crown to obtain materials), O’Connor applications, and records in sexual assault trials (section 278.1 regime). It will explore both the legal and practical requirements and give you the best chance to obtain what your client needs.
Heather Gagnier graduated from the University of Alberta Faculty of Law in 2018. Heather excelled in law school and received numerous awards for her academic achievements, like the 2018 George Bligh O’Connor Silver Medal in Law, the Gordon Wright QC Memorial Award in Advocacy, the President’s Scholarship in Law, and the Professor Bill Angus Prize in Criminal Law, to name just a few. She completed her articles at a large full-service law firm in Edmonton and subsequently practiced as a civil litigator in Edmonton and in London, Ontario before coming to work as Peter’s Associate in 2021.
