What is a Judicial Pretrial?

Author: Inderdeep Padda |

This is a pre trial meeting between you or your criminal defence lawyer, the judge, and the crown prosecutor where further issues pertaining to your case are discussed, such as length of trial, any applications the defence, number of witnesses to be called, narrowing of the issues to be argued at trial, or resolving your case in a manner which is favourable to both parties. You or your criminal defence lawyer will need to have a crown pretrial before you can schedule a Judicial Pretrial.
