Part 1: Repairing Harm and Rebuilding Communities

The Massachusetts Bar Association's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) presents 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 will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 25, to participate in this program. An email from MassBar Education with the Webinar ID and Password will be sent before the program.

The programs are free and open to all members in the legal community.
