Canadian Criminal Law and Procedure is an elective subject in postgraduate programs offered by the Faculty of Law. It is a survey subject intended to introduce students to substantive and procedural aspects of Canadian criminal law. It focuses on the distinctive provisions of the Criminal Code of Canada and their interpretation, and also on the role of the Canadian Charter Rights and Freedoms. The coverage of specific topics mirrors that in the compulsory subjects on Criminal Law and Procedure in Canadian law schools. There will be an introduction to criminal procedure followed by more in-depth analysis of issues in substantive criminal law.
