Description:  Prosecutors hold the unique position of “Minister of Justice” in our criminal justice system.  As such, they have an ethical duty to seek justice and to treat all parties – from defendants to victims - fairly.  But prosecutors are human, and thus susceptible to the influences of both implicit and confirmation bias.  This training will focus on how prosecutors’ implicit and confirmation bias may impact crime victims, and will provide guidance for how to focus case analysis and communicate with victims to overcome potential bias.
