The job of a prosecutor is not just to seek convictions but to seek justice. So when reports emerge of prosecutors abusing their power, it can shake public confidence in the entire justice system. Reformers argue that prosecutors exercise too much power with little or no oversight. Defenders of the current system argue that prosecutors work tirelessly to keep people safe from criminals and that abuses are extremely rare.
Join us for a special screening of a short documentary, by FedSoc Films, that explores the powerful role of prosecutors in our criminal justice system. Immediately following the film will be panel discussion with several criminal law experts featured in the film.
