The IATL Academy has created a comprehensive model for Youth Restorative Justice, including best practices and policies for schools, police, county and courts, and promotes sharing of best practices with its Fellows to create and enable change in their own communities. The initiative includes evaluation and reporting on restorative practices to establish their effectiveness and cost efficiency, the creation of educational materials and videos, and training for all participants. Three restorative justice initiatives, which have benefitted greatly from the active support of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, will be profiled in this workshop: Toronto-based Peacebuilders Canada’s Restorative Youth Circles and Restorative Schools Programs, the restorative programs of the Minnesota Legal Rights Center, and the multiple awards winner film ‘Once and Future Peace’.
