Seminar: Section 276 after R v Goldfinch: How Are Applications Being Resolved? [With Deborah Hatch]


11am MST, Friday, 10 September 2021

The Supreme Court’s 2019 decision in R v Goldfinch signalled a seismic change in the way s 276 applications were to be resolved. In this detailed seminar, Professor Sankoff will be joined by Deborah Hatch (insert link to her website), who argued Goldfinch before the Supreme Court. They will examine the impact Goldfinch has had on sexual activity evidence, and consider different arguments that can be made to admit such evidence in light of that important decision.
