AFFILIATES

Center for Restorative Justice
Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, CA
http://www.lls.edu/crj/

The Center for Restorative Justice is founded on the belief that human harm caused by crime must be healed by a criminal justice system that is more restorative than punitive; that victims and survivors of crime, including offenders who were themselves victimized and others harmed by crime, can never be healed by merely punishing offenders.

The Center exists to help bring about a shift from a punitive to a restorative paradigm of justice in our society.
