Disclosure generally and sexual offences in particular, has been a significant area of focus in recent years. From collapsed cases, to “digital strip-searches”, sexual offences raise many issues for the criminal lawyer.
To deal with this, there has been significant case-law in this area along with a newly published guideline by the Attorney-General on disclosure.
In addition, the law of disclosure has evolved to require more and more of the defence in relation to case management. This course will consider what the requirement to put your “cards on the table” means in practise.
This course is aimed at anyone wanting to update their knowledge generally on disclosure, and for those who would like to get a better understanding of the law relating specifically to sexual offences.
What this course will cover:
- Brief refresher on CPIA duties
- Defence disclosure requirements – can inferences be drawn under s. 11?
- Disclosure of digital evidence generally
- Disclosure in sexual offences
- What is a reasonable line of enquiry in a sexual offence case?
- What if the complainant doesn’t want to disclose evidence – is that the end of the case?
