Restorative Justice: A Panel Discussion (3/09/2021)
In this two part discussion, participants will learn what restorative justice is, how it is being used in Chicago and beyond, and what opportunities and barriers there are for growth of restorative justice practices in the legal profession and our communities. The first hour will focus on the introductory basics of what types of restorative justice practices exist and some examples of each. The second hour will dig into the use of restorative justice in and out of the courtroom and what may come next for the practice.
