Law Pillar
Tuesday 15th November 2022

Seminar | 4:30 PM-6:00 PM

This program provides a chance to refine your practical skills in relation to tendency and coincidence evidence.

Over the course of the session we will explore:

  • The nature of tendency and coincidence reasoning, with examples;
  • Assessing whether evidence has significant probative value and assessing prejudicial effect;
  • When to dispense with notice requirements
  • How to treat evidence from multiple complainants;
  • Jury directions;
  • Relevant policy contexts, including the use of tendency and coincidence in sexual offence trials.

The College will release an audio resource as a precursor to the in person event. Participants will then have an opportunity to apply knowledge through a discussion of scenarios with colleagues in a workshop format.
