Seminar: Peter Sankoff, Going Deep on the Residual Exception to the Hearsay Rule

$35.00$50.00

11am MST, Friday, 13 August 2021 

 In a 2020 seminar, Professor Sankoff addressed the exceptions to the hearsay rule in one fell swoop. That was a mistake! The residual or principled exception to the rule is, by far, the most complex part of the rule and includes a host of peculiarities that guide its application. In this one hour seminar, Professor Sankoff will navigate all the pitfalls that can arise here, and delve deeply into what makes a piece of hearsay “reliable” and “necessary”.

Seminar: The Use of Statements in Direct and Cross-Examination

$35.00$50.00

Almost every litigation case involves the use of statements to examine and cross-examine a witness. But there are a myriad of technical rules governing the use of such statements. In this interactive seminar, Professor Sankoff will delve into the use of statements, and how they must be tendered to refresh memory, impeach a witness or be advanced for a substantive purpose. What is counsel’s role? When are statements tendered as an exhibit, and when do they have to be turned over to your adversary?

Seminar: Race and the Law of Evidence [Professor David Tanovich]

$35.00$50.00

11am MST, Friday, 12 November 2021

How does a person’s race impact the law of evidence? Professor David Tanovich has spent much of his career exploring this question, and believes that many defence lawyers miss the chance to object to evidence that has prejudicial qualities in cases with a defendant from a racial minority or Indigenous background. In this important seminar, he will explore the way race impacts the law of evidence and discuss strategies for lawyers to use in objecting to evidence with these components.

Seminar: Litigation Privilege: A Primer

$35.00$50.00

11am MST, Friday, 26 November 2021

One of the most important evidentiary rules for civil litigators, litigation privilege is also one of the most misunderstood. Frequently contested, but vital to the conduct of litigation, it is essential to know the basics of this privilege. In this interactive seminar, Professor Sankoff will examine the law on litigation privilege by examining a host of scenarios that pose difficulty for the courts. Attendees will emerge with a much better understanding of how to ensure that evidence created for the purposes of litigation remains privileged – and how to attack claims of this sort made by an adversary.
