Abstract

This paper compares prosecutorial practices, regulation, norms and challenge in the United States, Canada and France in order to better understand prosecutorial misconduct and how to effectively address it. The paper argues that if we want to change prosecutorial behavior to a significant extent, we need to change the structural factors that produce the behavior we do not want. This includes introducing more effective and rigorous regulation of prosecutorial conduct. The paper acknowledges that these change would be difficult if not impossible to implement.

Keywords: legal ethics, prosecutors, comparative
