This title is a part of the Essentials of Canadian Law series.
The book focuses on “street-level” encounters: detentions and arrests that occur in the course of investigating crime and laying charges. The authors explore the initial interaction between agents of the state or others authorized to detain and arrest, and the private citizens whose liberty is interfered with. It is at that point that the balance between societal safety and individual liberty is most keenly in play.
This book, unlike any other criminal law textbook, provides a comprehensive legal analysis of the doctrine, covering every significant aspect, from the types of investigative detention, to the ways in which it can be challenged (or upheld).
This text serves as an essential reference for law enforcement officers to ensure compliance with the Criminal Code and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom in the context of the police powers of arrest, search and seizure, and interrogation.
This text analyzes and explains practice and procedure relating to judicial interim release and bail pending appeal. It is continuously updated to keep you always current and up to date, and features systematic canvassing of the procedural and evidentiary issues that arise in these proceedings.

What exactly is required of the accused in terms of their ability to think rationally? Does one need to be "fit to stand trial" in order to proceed with a bail hearing? Or, post-verdict, with sentencing? Can an otherwise unfit accused become "fit enough" with the assistance of counsel? Does the test for unfit to stand trial contain a prospective element? These and many other less-than-clear aspects of the fitness rules are explored fully in this new volume.
This handbook combines statutory framework with practical resources and advocacy advice. Chapters explore the types of criminal appeals, the procedural steps involved, written and oral argument, and the fresh evidence rule. Practical advice on appeals procedure, concrete guidance on drafting appeal factums, oral argument strategies, and model appeal factums and motions of appeal are also included.
