Once all the witnesses from both parties have testified, the next step is what is referred to as the “closing arguments”. Both parties will have the opportunity to argue their case and convince the judge that their position is the right one. The appellant generally starts, followed by counsel for the Crown. Once counsel for the Crown is done arguing his case, the appellant is given a last opportunity to address the Court, but only on new points raised by counsel for the Crown.
