Topic

For more than two decades, the Restorative Justice Project at the University of Wisconsin Law School has been bringing together victims and offenders in violent and sensitive crimes for facilitated, face-to-face meetings to address the impact of crime. Project director Jonathan Scharrer will discuss the victim-offender dialogue work in the serious cases handled by the law clinic. He’ll also explore some of the gaps in the justice system, the motivations of survivors who participate in the restorative justice process, and outcomes experienced. UW–Stout’s Carrie Acklin will provide a local perspective on restorative justice. Join other local Badger alumni for this fascinating look at the power and potential of restorative justice.
