The Intersection of Policing, The Criminal Justice System and Cultural Diversity: How to Ensure a Representative Jury (1:17:28)
10:30 – Noon The Intersection of Policing, The Criminal Justice System and Cultural Diversity: How to Ensure a Representative Jury
With reference to existing Supreme Court of Canada and appellate jurisprudence (see, eg. R. v. Kokopenace 2015 SCC 28), this session will consider the existing methods and best practices for ensuring a representative jury. It will also look at managing a trial where issues of culture and religion are at the forefront. Panelists will address the question of how to properly take account of diversity in managing a jury trial and charging the jury. Is there more that could be done to ensure the impartiality of the jury?
