Introduction to the Restorative Justice Symposium.

In this Introduction, I would like to note several key features of the
Symposium. First, I would like to thank Professor Mark Umbreit and
his colleagues for their new addition to the field, outlining the very
latest in research on restorative justice. Professor Umbreit is the Boden
Chair5 this year at Marquette University. His classes and public lectures
have already resulted in numerous benefits to our students. Through
this issue of the Marquette Law Review, we hope that his most recent
work will reach even more people. We think that his lead article is well
complemented by responses from a variety of perspectives. As was the
case with our earlier symposium on negotiation, this Symposium
recognizes the important contribution that different academic
perspectives can bring to the field of law and, therefore, offers views on
restorative justice from a mix of professors trained in law, sociology, and
communications. (excerpt)
