About "Resolution Strategies"
Criminal procedure is a complex balance. When the blindfolded Lady Justice holds the scales in her hand, it is a picture for her fairness and her balance of rights. The purpose of the criminal justice system is to find the truth and give out the consequences accordingly, but she cannot do anything and everything to fulfill that goal. She has limitations and boundaries set in place. Lines in the sand. Our privacy is important because it protects us from an otherwise unstoppable force. We have given up our privacy in today’s society out of convenience. We cannot do the same for justice.
The notes we just made are important because they are unique thoughts. Your beliefs about the resolution and your understanding of the topic can change throughout the year. In fact, your viewpoint absolutely should change. Just remember that what you believe matters in every debate. Search for relevant information and helpful tips. Use the provided materials, including the rest of this article, to your advantage. However, there is one strategy that is more effective than any other… that you believe what you are saying, and that you communicate your conviction to the judge.
