This specialist criminal law seminar, chaired by the Hon Justice Lindy Jenkins, focuses on what a ‘plea’ means under the Criminal Procedure Act 2004 and the circumstances where a change of plea can take place when an accused pleads guilty in a superior court.

This seminar also covers situations where an accused pleads to a lesser or statutory charge in circumstances in which the State does not accept that plea in full satisfaction of the principal charge and proceeds to trial.

The seminar provides practical tips, guidance and advice and is highly recommended for all criminal law practitioners.
