Let's talk it over
from Julia Proctor's article in The Age: Course road test: Bachelor of arts (advocacy and mediation) at Victoria University Sounds a bit different . . . Funny you should say that. This three-year degree, at VU's Footscray Park campus in Melbourne's west, is unusual, says course co-ordinator Deborah Tyler, who adds that there is nothing else quite like it in Australia. The course brings together elements of social policy, law and conflict-resolution training, preparing students for positions involving advocacy or mediation on behalf of disadvantaged groups or individuals involved in conflict.

File Restorative Justice - Seminary Course
Instructors: Harold Dean Trulear and Sylvia Moseley (TA). School: United Theological Seminary/Payne Theological Seminary. Date: January Term 2008. Description: Restorative Justice refers to a branch of ethics concerned with setting right relationships in response to offense. In the criminal justice system, offense is treated through some form of consequence, usually punitive. But the Christian needs to look beyond punishment to the concept of order and right relationship prescribed by God in His will for His people. So while the criminal justice system tends to punish and segregate offenders, the church strives for more- for restoration of relationships and all this entails. If participants take this course seriously, they will never be able to rid themselves of the image of a new way to address crime and justice in America- and especially in the African American community.
