About This Course
Before the dramatic closing argument or daring cross examination, prosecutor offices must carefully assess whether the case may be prosecuted and precisely how. For prosecutors, these rules provide both limitations for whether cases can be prosecuted at all, and guidelines for how they should be prosecuted if they are. For defense lawyers, these rules provide great advocacy opportunities to attempt to convince prosecutors to drop cases or to prosecute them in certain ways.
This CLE course analyzes these rules for the benefit of either prosecution or defense, complete examples for how these rules can be used in practice.
