January 14, 2021

While a growing number of Master of Arts in Restorative Justice (MARJ) students are now official graduates and have gone on to new jobs, experiences, and even time zones, we hope that ALL continue to feel connected to the restorative justice community here at Vermont Law School. It is so exciting to see the variety of paths MARJ alums have taken, and this alumna spotlight is one way we hope to stay tuned in to those journeys.

Emily Severson was among the first cohort of MARJ students in 2018 and is now working as a mitigation specialist for the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission. Please check out the video below to hear more about Emily’s story, and how restorative justice continues to impact the work she does today.
