The Community Restorative Justice Project allows Berkeley Law students to learn about and practice restorative justice in the community. In years past, CRJ has engaged in restorative justice work at San Quentin State Prison and Berkeley Unified High 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. Berkeley Law students in CRJ learn about and work to support an alternative model of conflict resolution both within the contexts of our carceral system, the school-to-prison pipeline, and the Berkeley Law community.
Time Commitment: To be determined for Spring 2021 application cycle.
Applying to CRJ? Community Restorative Justice Project is taking applications from new students in Spring 2021. Students interested in Restorative Justice should join the Restorative Justice student organization in Fall 2020.
