VUW Conference - Family Violence, Restorative Justice and the Legal System

February 05, 2015 at 10:38 AM

Victoria University of Wellington is hosting a 2-day symposium on 29-30 April 2015 on Family Violence, Restorative Justice and the Legal System. 

This symposium will explore innovative approaches to family violence based on principles, practices and values of restorative justice. The first day will consider relevant theoretical issues, including the social scientific, legal and cultural dimensions surrounding family violence, while the second day will focus on professional development training for practitioners, in particular restorative justice facilitators.

The symposium will be of interest to academics, policymakers, service providers and practitioners in the family violence and restorative justice sectors.

The goal is to consider the potential (and the pitfalls) of community-based interventions based on restorative justice procedures to address one of the most challenging social problems in our society.

The Law Foundation is helping to bring the keynote presenter Leigh Goodmark, Professor of Law in the Frances King Carey School of Law at the University of Maryland. Professor Goodmark directs the Gender Violence Clinic, a clinic providing direct representation in matters involving intimate partner abuse, sexual assault, trafficking, and other cases involving gender violence. Professor Goodmark is known for her award-winning book A Troubled Marriage: Domestic Violence and the Legal System” (NYUP, 2012).

Further information about the symposium will soon be available via the VUW web site.
