Tip 1: How to become a prosecutor
The public prosecutor can participate in court as the state prosecutor, is engaged in work with investigators or independently carries out investigations, gives out sanctions for carrying out of searches and arrests. In the competence of the prosecutor there is also a detailed analysis of evidence of the defendant's guilt and proposing a penalty for him.
What you need to do in order to becomeprosecutor. First of all, it is necessary to obtain higher legal education in an educational institution that has state accreditation. But one education is not enough: only those persons who have a certain length of service as investigator are usually appointed to the post of prosecutor, and they can provide a certificate of satisfactory state of health.
What kind of university should you choose in order to start your way to prosecutorial office? Real professionals are trained in such prestigious Russian universities as Moscow State University, MGUA (Moscow State Law Academy), MGIMO, Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, RPA (Russian Law Academy). Unfortunately, it's quite difficult to become a student of one of these universities - the competition is large and usually reaches 20 people per place. If you did not compete in one of the above higher educational institutions, you can try to enter the Institute of Public Prosecutions. The competition in this institution is usually much smaller (2-3 people per place). To become a student of the institute of the Prosecutor's Office, it is necessary not only to take exams and pass an interview in the personnel department of the prosecutor's office in Moscow and the Moscow region, but also to show good results in psychological testing.
After you receive a profile education, you will open the road to the prosecutor's office. Start a career as an assistant prosecutor or investigator of the prosecutor's office, and only in time you can expect to receive the post of deputy prosecutor. However, if you decide to become a prosecutor, keep in mind that much will depend on your personal and professional qualities. For rapid promotion, you need to be a professional, savvy in all areas of legal knowledge, have good memory and analytical thinking, demonstrate principles and emotional stability.
In order to clarify the circumstances of the case, the prosecutor or the investigator can summon the accused, the victims and witnesses. If you are one of these people, you will need information on how to behave inthe prosecutor's office .
Having received the summons, do not postpone the visit to the prosecutor's office. By law, the summons must be presented to you personally, but if you just put it in a mail box or passed it on to people living with you, it is advisable to report to the investigator for testimony or conversation.
If you want to protect yourself and are afraid of being accused of anything, find a lawyer in advance. It can be present during interrogation and, if necessary, help you develop a protection strategy. For one visit to the prosecutor, you do not need to conclude a long-term agreement with a lawyer, it will be enough to agree on his presence during interrogation and preliminary consultation. If you are recognized as an accused, the state can provide you with free legal assistance.
A call to the prosecutor's office is not a reason for premature panic. Even if you are accused of something, it is by no means a fact that a visit to the investigator will be followed by an immediate arrest. Strict proofs and direct evidence are needed to take into custody.
During the interrogation, answer the investigator's questions honestly. If you try to evade and lie, you will most likely be caught in various inconsistencies. But for some questions you can not answer at all. Also, keep in mind that you have the right not to testify against your next of kin, for example, against your husband or wife, or against yourself.
Before signing any documents carefully read them and consult with a lawyer. All your testimony must be recorded verbatim, without distortion. If this is not the case, you can not sign papers and require repeated interrogation or corrections in the protocol.
