Community Restorative Justice allows Berkeley Law students to engage in weekly Restorative Justice circles at Berkeley Unified High School. This SLP gives students the opportunity to work with high schoolers who may face suspension or expulsion consequences at the school. The RJ program at Berkeley Unified is an alternative to traditional suspension practices, and allows law students, staff, and high schoolers to use restorative practices to mediate harm. Law students have the opportunity to lead Restorative Justice circles in larger classrooms, or work one-on-one with Berkeley Unified students.
Time Commitment: Two-hour biweekly commitment during high school hours.
Applying to CRJ? Community Restorative Justice Project is taking applications from new students in Spring 2020.
