Slide 4

The Adversary System Judge stays latent and gets the proof Evidence called by the two gatherings: the state and the charged individual or company Parties have stake in result, exhibit prove that will profit their position Trials not a precise portrayal of the past Evidence must be pertinent and material Truth?????

Slide 5

The Presumption of Innocence: Most Important Principle Based in custom-based law and in s. 11(d) of the Charter Crown must present confirmation to dislodge this assumption past a sensible uncertainty, a substantial weight Accused require not discredit anything and need not affirm

Slide 6

Presumption of Innocence: most vital esteem (cont.) Innocent until demonstrated blameworthy past a sensible uncertainty by the state Role of the Crown (state) to achieve equity, not to convict No retroactive criminal law (See Section 11(g) Charter) Section 9 says that there are no customary law wrongdoings, must be composed down S. 8 blamed gets advantage for custom-based law safeguards

Slide 7

Judge/Jury Functions Jury is the trier of fact(ie what happened, who is to be trusted) Judge is the trier of law (eg is proof permissible) Decisions of certainty never appealable Decisions about law might be advanced Judge gives jury direction on the law Often trier of truth and law is a similar individual (ie no jury, thusly judge performs both capacities)

Slide 8

In law, blamed ought not be in peril in light of the fact that the Crown has not advanced any proof At the finish of the Crown's case, barrier can make a " no confirmation" movement

Legal Burden Crown must convince the trier of truth that the charged is blameworthy past a sensible uncertainty If there is a sensible uncertainty, the denounced is not liable Based in the Presumption of Innocence Burden stays with the Crown all through

Slide 12

Legal Burden(cont.) Exception:mental disorder!!!!! Crown must demonstrate both physical perspectives ( actus reus ) and mental angles ( mens rea ) past a sensible uncertainty) Accused never needs to discredit anything When charged raises a protection, Crown must demonstrate past a sensible that the resistance is not legitimate

Slide 13
