Description:  Victims’ attorneys and prosecutors may seem to be speaking different languages at times. The interests of victims are best served when victims’ attorneys and prosecutors understand one another. This training will cover the sometimes competing legal and ethical obligations that prosecutors must uphold in their pursuit of justice for victims, the defendant and the government. The training will also provide ideas for best practices in ensuring effective communication and collaboration between prosecutors and victims’ attorneys to achieve a victim-centered prosecution.
