New Prosecutors Academy

New Prosecutors Academy
This four day program is designed to cover issues relevant to newer prosecutors. Instruction will be focused on preparing cases for trial, as well as subject-specific issues most new prosecutors face. This seminar will include a full day of instruction in prosecuting domestic violence misdemeanors, as well as a half-day of instruction in prosecuting DUI.

*This program is part of the CDAA Core Curriculum*

This seminar compliments the Trial Advocacy Skills Workshop, although neither is a prerequisite for the other.
