AboutAbout This Course

Is a prosecutor truly a minister of justice and not simply an advocate as MR 8.3, Comment 1 states? Here we examine professionalism and training standards with an eye to a prosecutor’s role in instances of wrongful prosecution/incarceration. Further emphasis is devoted to prosecutorial misconduct at federal and state levels. Intentional prosecutorial misconduct by Michael B. Nifong serves as a model for how the Duke lacrosse game was so egregiously mishandled, serving as a seminal case of how future prosecutorial discretion/indiscretion might be best analyzed and the lessons to be learned therein.
