In 2004, the Marquette University Law School augmented its Dispute Resolution Programme by creating a restorative justice initiative. This new programme seeks to “serve as a resource for victims, communities, and restorative justice organizations, as a restorative justice clinical experience for law students, and as a program promoting scholarship, research, and dialogue on restorative justice.” Kyle Leighton, a programme assistant for the initiative, and Janine Geske, Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice and Distinguished Professor of Law, offer a description of the Restorative Justice Initiative and the inaugural events.
