On September 16th, Donna Coker, Professor of Law at UM, presented on the following topic: “Crime Law Logic, Campus Sexual Assault, and Restorative Justice.” In the presentation she explored the potential for Restorative Justice conferencing to be a useful response in some cases of campus sexual assault. Donna Coker's scholarship focuses on criminal law, gender and inequality, and she is a nationally recognized expert in domestic violence law and policy. We had a great turnout of students, faculty, and administrators!
