NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INDIGENOUS CRIMINAL JUSTICE POST-GLADUE
Members and friends of the law society are invited to attend the webcast of this PD conference held in Iqaluit
Saturday September 14, 2019 [10am – 5pm]
Baffin Room, Frobisher Inn (Lunch to be provided)
This is a prerecorded conference that was developed to mark the 20th anniversary of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in R. v. Gladue. R. v. Ipeelee and subsequent jurisprudence on section 718.2 (e) of the Criminal Code have made it clear there is a positive duty on counsel to adduce and judges to consider, information related to the unique circumstances of Indigenous people who come before the courts and in contact with the criminal justice system. This is an opportunity for members of the Nunavut bar to listen to an experienced, multi-disciplinary faculty from across Canada discuss Indigenous criminal justice post-Gladue.
