David Lerman: Part 2
In Part 2, David tells the story of a restorative justice conference in which the perpetrator, a young person, struck a school cafeteria worker, the human side of legal work. He talks about justice and closure and how restorative justice is more likely to bring healing and closure.
David tells how doing restorative justice is a personal blessing and enjoyment of his work. He talks about how the notion of justice as healing has become more personal for him as he's gone through his own healing of cancer.
He also poses the question of how to bring these ideas into the culture of legal education.
