The St. Thomas More Society and Christian Legal Society co-hosted a panel on restorative justice in April 2024.

Guest speakers were Fr. David Kelly, C.PP.S. (Director of Precious Blood Ministries of Reconciliation), Matthew Simon (Chairman of the Catholic Lawyer's Guild's Restorative Justice Committee), and Elizabeth Clarke, (Former public defender and founder of the Juvenile Justice Initiative).  See photos from the event here.
