The law of sexual assault is in a constant state of evolution. In this seminar, Professor Sankoff will provide a much-needed update on the law concerning “myths and stereotypes”, section 276, and the use of an accused’s affidavit for cross-examination. Recent decisions like Kirkpatrick, McKnight and HP (ONCA) will all be considered.
Through the publishing arm of CDE, Peter has released a first book, Professor Sankoff’s Guide to Legal Writing.
Professor Sankoff's Guide to Persuasive Legal Writing
After over two decades as a law professor and lawyer, Peter Sankoff has encountered many common writing challenges faced by nearly all writers—from students to seasoned lawyers. Peter’s years of practice have underscored the fact that strong written argument is indispensable to zealous advocacy. Writing challenges impede the effectiveness of otherwise strong arguments, causing much to be lost in translation. In Professor Sankoff’s Guide to Persuasive Legal Writing, Peter shares years of accumulated tips, tricks, and guidance to take your writing to the next level. Designed with busy students and lawyers in mind, the book is filled with practical guidance, examples, and checklists to ensure tips can be easily understood and applied by readers.
