Criminal Law Precedents

This is intended to be a small collection of precedents used by practitioners in criminal law. Obviously at this stage this page is very much a work in progress. Under Part 1 rule 11 of the Supreme Court Rules, and rule 47.2 of the District Court Rules, forms prescribed under the Civil Procedure Act may be used in criminal proceedings. A set of these forms can be found here. It follows that the forms for notices of motion, affidavits and subpoenae in the Supreme Court are essentially the same as in the District Court.
