In 1998, Assistant District Attorney David Lerman and First Assistant Public Defender Tom Reed, from opposite sides of the criminal justice system in Milwaukee, were among the first to work together to create successful restorative justice programming in a high-crime, urban area of the country

Milwaukee’s Community Conferencing Program has since held more than 200 restorative justice conferences and serves as a nation-wide model for community-based criminal justice programming.

This event will give legal professionals in Massachusetts a primer on restorative justice practices, its applications in the criminal justice setting, and the nuts and bolts of creating a successful restorative justice program in an urban environment.

Because space is limited, you must register by Sunday, March 25. Contact Yael Shy at (617) 960-6271 or via e-mail at [e-mail shy.y] to sign up for this program.

Co-sponsors: Black Law Students Association, NUSL, Boston Bar Association, Boston College Law School, Center for Restorative Justice at Suffolk University, Criminal Justice Policy Coalition, Massachusetts Bar Association, Northeastern University School of Law
