Beyond The Adversarial System- Achieving the Challenge Webinar

Traditionally, prosecutors and defenders are adversaries in the courtroom. In order to achieve the SJC goals of system-wide sustainable change, collaboration with all system actors is essential. However, broader criminal justice reform can often be difficult to achieve when dealing with traditionally opposing roles. Therefore, APA and NLADA have drafted a joint publication entitled “Beyond the Adversarial System: Achieving the Challenge,” which stems from our April 2017 joint meeting that brought together SJC prosecutors and defenders from four jurisdictions.

Combatting Human Trafficking Through Collaboration
