Going to Court

Step by step through the process

Everyone makes mistakes. Often the best way to remedy a bad situation is to be prepared for court and do the work it takes to try and get the best outcome. Being charged with a crime usually means going to court to face the consequences. Going through the criminal court process is often a confusing and frightening experience for people. The Going to Court workshop goes through every step of the process, from charges to sentencing. This workshop also offers useful information on accessing Legal Aid and appealing a court’s decision. The Going to Court workshop also explains the Gladue Decision and the significance of a Gladue Report for Aboriginal defendants involved in the justice system.
