“Verdict is in: B.C. justice services more affordable, less complex, foster early resolution” by quotes Vancouver lawyer Geoff Cowper in an article about his findings on B.C.’s criminal justice system.

British Columbia has become a leader in justice-system innovation and performance, says D. Geoffrey Cowper in the fourth-anniversary update to the 2012 report, A Criminal Justice System for the 21st Century.

Marking Access to Justice Week, Cowper’s update highlights B.C.’s progress in improving early resolution rates, achieving better timeliness in criminal justice cases and improving the handling of complex prosecutions.
