Alberta Law Reform Institute Final Report on Criminal Appeal Procedures

The Alberta Law Reform Institute has released its final report on Criminal Appeal Procedures:
"The challenge accepted by the Alberta Law Reform Institute, and taken up by its working group of judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers and academics, was to bring clarity and logic to this complex area. Final Report 101 sets out a simple comprehensive procedure, from start to finish, including a step-by-step description of the process. It begins with the filing of a notice of appeal; the submission by both appellant and respondent of materials and evidence to support the appeal; the presentation of oral argument at the hearing; and concludes with the issue of an order by the court."
"The Report also identifies necessary reforms to implement the process and describes what matters can be dealt with by court officers, duty judges and hearing panels."
