LAW 624: Select Problems in Criminal Law: Restorative Justice

Western criminal jurisprudence has been critiqued as ignoring the needs of victims, emphasizing retributive at the expense of rehabilitative goals, and creating an economic burden through increasingly punitive sentencing patterns. This course offers a critical examination of restorative justice as an ancillary approach to holding criminal offenders accountable while also addressing victim and community needs. Students will become familiar with practices they may encounter or have the opportunity to initiate in their own work in the criminal justice system.
