Daniel Brezniak, Barrister, HB Higgins

The Court of Criminal Appeal in NSW makes many decisions each year, this arises in no small measure because of the passage of new criminal legislation.

In recent years the High Court of Australia has made decisions in the area of prosecution and range of sentencing and decisions concerned with the machinery of the criminal law such as extension of time for appeals. This is intended to provide an overview of some of the most important decisions during the year concentrating on some of those cases with practical application for trial lawyers in NSW courts.

Although there may not be time to look in any detail at the great number of sentence appeal cases this Update will discuss some of these and give attention to the following subject matters in recent legislation, Court of Criminal Appeal and High Court of Australia decisions.

  • Evidence in conviction appeals
  • Criminal procedure
  • Certain specific offences which come before the courts more frequently
  • Other cases of particular importance to the practitioner

There will also be some discussion, about the decisions concerning bail and the increasing complexity in this area with which the practitioner must deal.

Who should attend?

  • Criminal Lawyers
