Evaluation Report: Criminal Pre-Trial Conference Pilot Project

January 27, 2012

The Supreme Court of BC has just released an evaluation report of its Criminal Pre-Trial Conference Pilot Project, which “began on March 1, 2010, in four Court locations (Vancouver, New Westminster, Chilliwack, and Kamloops) and has remained in effect in those locations since.”

The Pilot Project examined whether an increased focus on pre-trial conferences would improve scheduling and orderly conduct of criminal trials and their pre-trial applications.

This Evaluation Report provides a background on the pilot project, describes the evaluation process and feedback, and seven specific recommendations for moving forward.
