Event description
Dr. Patricia Coburn will be speaking about the rights, well-being, and other aspects of child witnesses.

About this Event

Beginning in the 1980’s, critical changes were developed in Canada to help promote the rights and well-being of child witnesses. However, it is questionable whether these changes are adequate to protect child witnesses and ensure that children provide the most reliable evidence. Dr. Patricia Coburn will discuss how characteristics related to the case, such as offense frequency, may affect outcomes in cases involving children and will conclude with a discussion on whether we should continue to cross-examine child witnesses.
