UPCOMING WEBINARS

 


 

The webinar will provide prosecutors with an overview of the current science of HIV in order to approach HIV related criminal cases with the most up to date scientific information. The presentation will include details on the routes of HIV transmission, the effects of acute and early HIV infection, as well as the average and individual risk of HIV transmission for different kinds of activities. It will also describe the role of antiretroviral therapy and how transmission risk may be substantially reduced with modern treatment and condom use.

This webinar is a great opportunity for prosecutors to learn more about the basics of HIV, including how the science of HIV transmission is relevant to the legal context.

The webinar will bring together a doctor, survivor/activist and a DOJ prosecutor to address the growing problem of female genital mutilation and cutting (FGM/C) of girls in the United States, as well as the practice of sending girls outside the United States to have this procedure performed. In addition to providing a basic understanding of where, why and to whom this is happening, the panelists will discuss the state and federal laws making the practice illegal and what child abuse professionals need to know.

In July 2014 the United States Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division (CRD) issued guidance to states on how to reform HIV-specific criminal laws to bring them into alignment with current science, from the actual routes and risks of HIV transmission to the role of highly effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) in treatment and prevention. The webinar will include a review and analysis of the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division’s Best Practices Guide to Reform HIV-Specific Criminal Laws to Align with Scientifically-Supported Factors, including recommendations on the limited circumstances where prosecution is warranted.

This webinar will introduce prosecutors to important recent developments in the response to the issue of HIV-specific criminal laws.
