De toepassing van vormverzuimen voor de verdediging in strafzaken anno 2021

In deze versie (nieuwe) cursus zal worden ingegaan op de ontwikkeling van de sanctionering van vormverzuimen in strafzaken vanuit het perspectief van de verdediging in strafzaken. Met name wordt stilgestaan bij de voortschrijdende jurisprudentie op dit gebied en de aanstaande veranderingen op dit terrein in het gemoderniseerde wetboek van strafvordering. De nadruk van de cursus zal liggen op de praktische implicaties van deze ontwikkelingen en de wijze waarop de verdediging in strafzaken hiervan in het kader van formele verweren gebruik kan maken.

Deze cursus komt in aanmerking voor 4 PO NOvA. De laatste drie kwartier van de cursus is gereserveerd voor uw specifieke vragen aan de docent.
