A TYPICAL TRIAL DAY

A court trial day is typically from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (with a 30 minute recess) and 2:15 to 4:30 p.m. (with a 30 minute recess) which allows at most for 4 and 3/4 hours of trial time in a day. No trial day runs without court interruptions or delays for a multitude of reasons. A trial consists of arraignment, motions, Crown witnesses examination and cross-examination, defence witnesses examination and cross-examination, Crown argument, defence argument, reasons for judgment and perhaps submissions on sentence. As a result the simplest of trials take at least one day of court time.

Judge calls out lawyers for lowballing trial estimates.
