Restorative Justice Coming to VLS

Dear VLS Community,

While attending the 4th Annual Energy Law and Policy Symposium in Washington DC yesterday, I received good news from South Royalton. The call was to report receipt of two letters from the American Bar Association granting acquiescence in our applications to establish a Professional Certificate in Restorative Justice, and a Master of Arts in Restorative Justice degree. This news is an important step toward establishing the Center for Justice Reform at Vermont Law School. My congratulations to Professor Robert Sand, Associate Deans David Mears and Sean Nolon, Adjunct Professor Rebecca Zietlow, Distinguished Visiting Scholar Gale Burford, and Program Coordinator Erin Webster Chambers, all of whom have contributed mightily to developing this new program.
