Minnesota Indian Women\'s Sexual Assault Coalition (MIWSAC)
The NIPDV is a 3 ½ -day highly interactive course designed to challenge participants to re-evaluate their approach to prosecuting domestic violence. The curriculum, facilitated by a multidisciplinary faculty, is grounded in evidence-based prosecution, equipping prosecutors with the skills and strategies to hold offenders accountable regardless of whether victims are able to testify at trial. In addition to practical case evaluation and litigation skills, NIPDV focuses on risk assessment, coordinated community responses, trauma-informed interviewing, strangulation, intimate partner sexual assault, co-occurring crimes, witness intimidation and forfeiture by wrongdoing, presentation of evidence at trial, expert testimony, cultural humility, jury selection, and ethical considerations.
Through a combination of hypothetical case scenarios, participant exercises, small group discussions, interactive lectures, and faculty demonstrations, participants will re-examine their own beliefs about domestic violence and refine their prosecution practices.
