Georgia State University to launch national resource for restorative justice
Mar 04, 2009
From Georgia State University's College of Law News: Georgia State University will soon provide a comprehensive resource to help those in the field of restorative justice learn from one another and to improve practices, through a national Web-based clearinghouse.
The clearinghouse will include a state-by-state guide to statutes, case law, agencies and programs. The clearinghouse will also provide a method of social networking to allow those in the field to interface with one another, as well as academic articles, legal resources and research into the field.
Restorative justice practitioners often focus on specific activities, specializing in issues such as aiding victims of violent crimes. The clearinghouse will allow those practitioners to help provide for victims and others who need services in a variety of fields in which the practitioner doesn’t necessarily have expertise.
