Description: Multi-victim criminal cases present many challenges for an individual crime victim's attorney. Ensuring and enforcing your individual client's rights can be difficult when a few or many victims are named in a criminal case.  For instance, an individual victim's right to notice, to confer, to privacy, and to compensation have the potential to be violated when there are many victims in a criminal case. It is vital for a crime victim's rights attorney to know what to look for and the creative ways to enforce their client's rights in such circumstances.

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.

Presenter: Geoff Kagan-Trenchard, J.D., Staff Attorney at the New York City Anti Violence Project.  Read more about Mr. Kagan-Trenchard.

 

Description: As attorneys, we take the worst stories our clients carry and try to mold them into cognizable claims for relief. One of our greatest assets are memories of our clients, particularly the specific details we use to show credibility. However, the effect of trauma on memory is well documented- often times the most painful moments are hardest to clearly remember. So how can we as attorneys help our clients remember the things anyone would want to forget?
 
In this training, we will discuss the latest research in neuropsychology and what it can tell us about how we remember. We will review concrete techniques to reduce client stress during interviews as well as how to best support them before, during, and after testimony. Finally, we’ll look at what we can do to support ourselves and our colleagues in this vital and difficult work.
