Presented By: BWJP

A webinar is an on-line seminar and requires access to the internet to connect.

2) VoIP (free audio through the internet, speakers are required). 

Presenter: Teresa Garvey, an attorney advisor with AEquitas

Content: All lawyers have a duty to conduct themselves ethically, and prosecutors are (rightly) held to an even higher standard. As Justice Sutherland famously observed in United States v. Berger, 295 U.S. 78 (1935), a prosecutor's interest in a criminal case is not that he or she "shall win a case, but that justice shall be done." This webinar will not only review the ethical duties of prosecutors from the standpoint of the Rules of Professional Conduct, as well as other professional standards of conduct for State advocates in criminal actions, but will explore the many ways in which prosecutors handling domestic violence cases can strive to do justice in the broadest sense of the word, taking into account the interests of victims, defendants, and society as a whole.
