Add to CPD Planner


One of the fundamental tenets of the rule of criminal law is the right to a fair trial. Knowing the case against your clients through an effective disclosure process constitutes a key foundation for this right. This webinar will be of value whether you are representing the prosecution or defence.

Matt and Shane will provide an overview of the functionality of the criminal law disclosure process and consider strategies and tools that you can employ when dealing with disclosure-related issues.

Topics covered will include:

  • Prosecutorial duty to provide all relevant disclosure on an ongoing basis
  • Case management tips and tools to access information held by the prosecution or non-parties
  • Lessons learned from recent cases including the consequences for failing to disclose information appropriately.

Learning objectives

After this webinar you will be:

  • Able to understand the scope of prosecutorial and non-party obligations to provide disclosure.
  • Aware of the challenges that can be raised to compel disclosure.
