Leonard Inskip reports in this article on a two-day restorative justice conference in early March 2000 at William Mitchell College of Law in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Attendees included police, corrections officials, school workers, inner city activists, Native Americans, and others. As Inskip summarizes, through speakers and discussions the participants heard about restorative justice ideas and processes, stories of restorative justice successes, and challenges for restorative justice.
