Alberta Law Reform Institute Report on Challenge For Cause in Criminal Jury Trials

The Alberta Law Reform Institute has published Criminal Jury Trials: Challenge for Cause Procedures:

"This final report is a precursor to what is hoped will be new criminal rules dealing with challenge for cause procedures in the context of criminal jury trials. The report represents the final policy positions of the criminal rules working committee following consideration of comments on the published report titled Criminal Jury Trials: Challenge for Cause Procedures, Consultation Memorandum No. 12.20."

"The criminal rules working committee will proceed with the final subject areas in accordance with its mandate under the Rules of Court Project, but we thought it important to make the legal community aware of the settled policy positions in connection with challenge for cause proceedings even though it may take some time for the positions to be implemented in rule form."
