Description: 

The National Institute on the Prosecution of Sexual Violence (NIPSV) is a three and one-half day course designed to challenge participants to reevaluate their approach to prosecuting sexual violence crimes. NIPSV explores the complex issues faced by prosecutors in balancing offender accountability and the impact of criminal prosecution on victims. In addition to practical case evaluation and litigation skills, the curriculum addresses the development and improvement of culturally sensitive victim services by prosecutors; examines the benefits of developing a coordinated victim-centered community response; explains common injuries, relevant medical evidence and offers guidance on the use of medical experts; explores ethical issues confronted by prosecutors; and offers prosecutors the ability to redefine outcomes and the very nature of justice in sexual violence cases.

NIPSV uses hypothetical case problems, role-playing exercises, small group discussions, mini-lectures, and faculty demonstrations. Rather than reading specific case law, participants employ case evaluation, preparation, and trial skills to understand sexual violence in the various contexts in which it occurs and examine their current attitudes and practices. The highly interactive format enables prosecutors from different jurisdictions, with varied levels of experience, to learn from one another and engage in "real-life" activities that are readily transferable to their everyday work. Prosecutors who have found strategies to overcome the unique challenges in handling sexual violence cases will share their success stories and techniques. Prosecutors will leave the institute with new ideas and methods for keeping victims safe and holding offenders accountable.
