Justice isn’t really talked about in law school.‖ Nathan Jurowski, law student and co-founder of Exploring Justice. While justice is the basic purpose of our crimi-nal justice system, those on opposite sides of the law often have different perceptions of justice and how it is achieved.

Partici-pants are joined at each week’s session by a guest speaker to further stimulate discussion and gain a broader perspective of justice among criminal justice professionals. (excerpt)
