The target audience for this webinar is prosecutors but others would also benefit from this training as well

Here is a brief description of the webinar:
The outcome of many child abuse cases depends on the ability of the prosecutor to argue the facts to the jury. In this workshop prosecutors and child protection attorneys will learn the art and science of effective strategies and themes for opening statements and closing arguments in child abuse cases. Participants will learn a theme for presenting their case. They will learn specific arguments to persuade a jury that a child is telling the truth. They will learn to debunk common defenses in child abuse cases.
