Students in the Community Restorative Justice Project (CRJ) have the opportunity to explore an alternative to the retributive model of our criminal punishment system. SLP members will engage with restorative justice practices on the Berkeley campus and in the broader local community.
In the last several years, Berkeley Law students in CRJ attended restorative roundtables at San Quentin State Prison on a biweekly basis. The roundtables were led and facilitated by the people incarcerated in the prison. Due to changes in the program administered by San Quentin, CRJ will not be attending roundtables at San Quentin this year, but will be promoting and practicing restorative justice principles on campus and in the local community.
Time Commitment: Students are expected to commit up to 10-15 hours a semester.
Applying to CRJ? Community Restorative Justice Project will begin to taking applications from new students in Spring 2020.
