Topic: Courts
This webinar discusses common victim behaviors and sexual assault dynamics and their impact on fact finders’ assessments of victim credibility and reviews the relevant law permitting the introduction of expert testimony to explain victim behaviors in sexual assault cases. Participants are guided through the process of deciding whether to introduce expert testimony and how to summarize the most effective use of expert witnesses to educate judges and juries about common victim behaviors. In addition, this presentation identifies ways to work with experts to prepare a case for trial even where testimony will not be introduced. Participants will be encouraged, through the use of hypothetical case problems, to draw on their own experience and re-examine current attitudes and practices by employing active case evaluation and preparation.
