Professor Kristen Blankley and Alisha Caldwell Jimenez, ’17, published Restorative Justice and Youth Offenders in Nebraska in the Nebraska Law Review.  This article examines new programs throughout the state for first-time youth offenders that are alternatives to the criminal justice system. Restorative justice programs require the person who committed the harm to be accountable for the wrong and to repair the harm caused to the other individual. In addition to providing insight into the program, the article also analyzes early data regarding the programs.
