Criminal Law

Criminal Law Procedure is set out in the Criminal Code but there are Manitoba-specific practices as well.  These materials cover the practical basics from arrest to appeals and will be useful to both Crown and defence.

Thank you

The Law Society of Manitoba thanks all the volunteer lawyer reviewers who have contributed to the past development and current updating of the materials. It would not have been possible without the hours of help they have given over the years.

The reviewers of the Criminal Law Procedure chapters:

  • Vic Bellay
  • Kathy Bueti, KC
  • Raegan Rankin
  • Laura Robinson
  • Chief Judge Ryan Rolston
  • Joan Schmidt
  • Gerri Wiebe, KC
