R v Kokopenace: The Panel

October 15, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The Aboriginal Law Program Speaker Series and the Constitutional Roundtable present:
“R v Kokopenace: The Panel”

Heard before the Supreme Court on October 6, 2014, R v Kokopenace is a case concerning the representativeness of jury panels in Ontario, particularly with respect to First Nations people living on-reserve and the role of s. 6(8) of the Juries Act. Issues in this case involve the constitutional right to an impartial jury, the meaning of representativeness, reasonable efforts required by the Crown to attain representativeness, and the appropriate remedy failing reasonable efforts. Join us for a panel of the parties (featured below), who will discuss their arguments to the Court and responses to questions posed by the Bench. Panelists include Brian Greenspan, Jessica Orkin, Cheryl Milne, Mary Eberts, Julian Roy and Christa Big Canoe.
