The legal system needs to develop this complementary paradigm,
and law schools should help to do so. This Essay proposes establishing
Restorative Justice Programs in law school, where law students
would gain first-hand experience working with people who
are caught up in the criminal justice system. Along with learning
the traditional legal tools, students would have the opportunity to
employ other techniques to heal those involved in legal disputes.(excerpt)
