Criminal Defendants with Dementia
The Dementia Justice Society of Canada is developing a case digest of domestic and foreign criminal law jurisprudence involving defendants with defendants. The goal is to create a publicly-available database of case summaries that is user-friendly and accessible to both legal professionals and the general public at large. Over time, we aim to eventually use the database for future research and analysis purposes at Dementia Justice. We also hope that other organizations and individuals may benefit from the centralized information.
If you are a law student (or graduate student in law) who is interested in volunteering on this project, please see the position posting for more information and application instructions. As this is an ongoing project with yearly updates, we are accepting applications on an ongoing basis. Further, since it covers both domestic and foreign case law, we are interested in receiving applications from students in Canada and abroad.
