Description: The University of Mississippi Law School's National Center for Justice and the Rule of Law (NCJRL) will develop and deliver training to provide investigators and prosecutors with the expertise to detect technology crime, identify offenders, and analyze electronic evidence. The primary goal of NCJRL, in this regard, will be to improve the quality and availability of investigatory tools and prosecution resources with respect to sophisticated criminal activity. NCJRL will also continue to actively solicit proposals for pilot projects, through the National Association of Attorneys General and other agencies, which focus upon challenges to the justice system with regard to cyber crime. NCJRL will also: 1) collaborate with the National Judicial College to develop expanded training opportunities for new and experienced judges with a focus on search and seizure principles; 2) hold an annual conference focused on Fourth Amendment issues; and 3) sponsor research by scholars on search and seizure issues and institute a Fourth Amendment lecture series for the discussion of this research. As a training initiative, NCJRL will create programs focused on what it terms "three under-emphasized areas of legal learning." These are: prosecutorial training, criminal appeals training, and victims' rights training. Prosecutor externship and criminal appeals training programs will be used to establish program models along these needed areas of legal learning, which will be promoted as models that other law schools can emulate. Promotion of these models will occur though conferences and publications. NCJRL anticipates that beginning lawyers will enter the field better prepared to face the challenges of the complex legal arena if they have experience with these models.
