Conviction Appeals to the Court of Appeal of Alberta: A Statistical Analysis, 1985-1992
AbstractAlthough the Provincial Courts of Appeal perform the same role within the Canadian judicial system, they do not share a similarity in caseload. Alberta's Court of Appeal is unique in the sense that although Alberta is the fourth largest province, it handles more conviction appeals as an absolute number than any other province. Through an analysis of various statistical surveys. McCormick explores this phenomenon. His work centres around conviction from 1985 to 1992 and it reveals trends that have developed during that time.
