21st Century Prosecutors: What Does It Mean for Prosecutors to be Progressive?

Northwestern University Law School, Chicago, IL

ACS Northwestern will host a panel on progressive prosecutors. With our faculty advisor Deborah Tuerkheimer as a moderator, the panel will include Andrew Warren of Tampa, Florida, Mark Dupree of Kansas City, Kansas, and John Chisholm of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It will also include Miriam Krinsky, Executive Director of FJP.

Fair and Just Prosecution (FJP) connects a new generation of prosecutive leaders to the latest learning and best practices of respected experts from around the country. As these leaders model new strategies in prosecution and public service, FJP helps them to overcome barriers, address ongoing challenges, and share their successes so others can learn from them and propel broader changes in the field. FJP will also be talking about summer employment opportunities. The Summer Fellows will be part of a cohort of accomplished law students from around the nation interested in criminal justice reform and will have a unique opportunity to receive hands-on experience working on criminal cases and other assignments typical of internships in prosecutor's offices, while also undertaking a policy reform project on an issue of interest to that office.
