2016 Braun Symposium on Restorative Justice
The John Marshall Law Review is proud to be hosting, with The John Marshall Law School, the 2016 Braun Symposium on Restorative Justice.
The criminal justice system is constantly adapting to the ideologies and public policies of the society it serves. In the age of mass incarceration, our judicial system has become too focused on achieving retribution against offenders, rather than seeking better outcomes for offender and victim alike. Alternatively, restorative justice is a rapidly developing area of reform focused on reducing recidivism rates and mass incarceration by not only addressing, but rebuilding, the relationship between victim and offender.
