Lessons on Trial Practice

Brian Sunohara spoke at The Advocates’ Society’s Tricks of the Trade Conference last week on “Girao v. Cunningham: Lessons on Trial Practice and Fairness for Self-Represented Litigants”.

Brian wrote a paper in conjunction with his presentation. The paper covers the following topics:

  • the use of joint document books;
  • introducing evidence of participant experts and non-party experts;
  • the distinction between section 35 and section 52 of the Evidence Act;
  • whether the jury can be advised of an accident benefits settlement; and
  • working with self-represented litigants at trial.

The paper can be found here.
