This prgram covers the how criminal charges are handled in the justice system. It begins with an explanation of the investigation process, common mistakes made by an accused person and key rights. The course progresses through your rights upon arrest, being released from custody, publication bans and what to expect at your first court date. You’ll learn about disclosure and how evidence is collected and produced in court. The course wraps up by explaining the trial process and guilty pleas. We have also included some details on how cases are appealed and the basics about getting a record suspension.

This course is designed for Ontario procedure but useful throughout Canada because criminal offences are the same across the country. If you are a victim, this program will give you an inside scoop of the justice system, details on the duration of cases, options the accused will have, where your participation will be required and what a defence lawyer is up too. Whether you are charged with a violent offence, sexual misconduct, driving, financial or property offence, this program will help you understand the court process.

Our lawyers have invested a significant amount of resources to provide all this legal information for a single fair price. By purchasing this course, remember you are not retaining us as your lawyers for legal advice or representation. What we are giving you is affordable legal information which is knowledge about law and the legal system in general terms, not tailored to a specific case. In contrast, legal advice applies the law and legal principles to a specific case, something you'll need to hire a lawyer for. 

If you have already purchased our program on sexual assault charges, this course will not be necessary as there is overlap between the material.

Please read the curriculum carefully to make sure it’s right for you before buying since all sales are final.
