Restorative justice - What is it & how can it improve the justice system

The webinar will feature the team from Open Circle, a new restorative justice service at RMIT’s Centre for Innovative Justice, engage in a discussion about restorative justice, how it approaches the work and some case studies which demonstrate how valuable the process can be to parties impacted by a crime or other harm.
