RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law School’s Juvenile Justice Project (JJP) visited New Horizons Academy in nearby Durham on Tuesday, April 16, to discuss restorative justice with students. JJP Director Jon Powell and second-year student Jacquelyn Merrill met with students, engaged them in the powerful restorative justice tool known as the “circle process,” and discussed recently mediated cases.
“Our visit to New Horizons Academy was a great opportunity for us to interact and begin constructive dialogue with eager young minds,” said Powell. “The students were receptive, respectful, engaged, and connected to one another in very critical ways. It is certainly our hope to continue our relationship with the academy.”
New Horizons Academy is a non-profit private school primarily focused on impoverished children.
