Understanding Sexual Violence: The Judicial Response to Stranger and Nonstranger Rape and Sexual Assault

A two-day model curriculum that focuses on dealing fairly with sexual assault cases, especially nonstranger rapes. It provides interdisciplinary research from law, medicine, and the social sciences about adult victim sexual assault and invites judges to consider how this information relates to their responsibilities in the pre-trial, trial, and sentencing phases of sexual assault trials, and as leaders in the criminal justice system and the community.
