Criminal Law - Introduction
In British Columbia, most criminal offences are heard in the Provincial Court. For some serious offences, the accused has the choice to have their trial in Provincial Court or Supreme Court. Some of the most serious offences, like murder, must have their trial in Supreme Court. You may be called to serve jury duty for Supreme Court criminal trials.
