Part 1: Repairing Harm and Rebuilding Communities

The Massachusetts Bar Association's Judicial Administration Section and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) will present a two-part program series on restorative justice. This will be a robust discussion of the restorative justice efforts that are happening within the trial courts on the state and federal level, schools, workplaces, and programs. At its core, restorative justice re-imagines the definition of “justice," substituting “punishment" with “repair.” To better understand this shift, the MBA invites you to engage in our upcoming two-part series.

Program takeaways include: 

  • Understanding the historical background of restorative justice
  • Understanding the benefits of restorative justice
  • Gaining insight on strategies and methods to successfully advocate for restorative justice as an alternative disposition
  • Learning about the current restorative justice pilot programs in the state and federal courts

This webinar was hosted using Zoom.
