In the current age, crime—specifically fraud—is becoming more common, organized, and complex. The increase in white-collar offences has changed the way society is tackling fraud, from police services across Canada developing specialized units for fraud investigation to regulatory bodies pursuing severe disciplinary measures.
Prosecuting and Defending Fraud Cases: A Practitioner’s Handbook, 2nd Edition prepares readers to properly litigate fraud cases, examining both prosecutorial and defence perspectives. Guiding readers step by step throughout the process of a fraud case, this practical resource weaves strategic information with case law analysis and relevant provisions of the Criminal Code.
This edition features up-to-date legislation, additional content, updated charts, and a new chapter on cyber fraud in Canada. This handbook is designed to assist Crown attorneys, defence counsel, and trial judges in understanding the principles of fraud.
