In this seminar we will explore both the theory and the practice of restorative justice, an alternative approach to the retributive justice model of our present criminal law system, and will engage in field work in the community. Restorative justice approaches crime and conflict as occasions for social repair requiring community involvement, offender accountability, and victim participation. The model provides an opportunity to intervene in the school-to-prison pipeline and to reduce the mass incarceration of people of color. We will discuss the philosophy and history of restorative justice, the use of restorative justice models in other countries and cultures, the application of restorative justice principles to both juvenile and adult offenders in the United States, the use of restorative justice approaches in educational institutions and workplaces, and reparations movements in South Africa and the United States.
