James Forman Jr. Honored by New Haven Legal Assistance Association
James Forman Jr. of Yale Law School was recently honored by New Haven Legal Assistance Association at its Equal Access to Justice Reception.
New Haven Legal Assistance Association was created in 1964 to “secure justice for and to protect the rights of those residents of New Haven County unable to engage legal counsel.” The organization annually recognizes honorees who share its commitment to justice.
In his remarks, Professor Forman spoke about the potential of restorative justice, including a story from his time as a public defender. Prior to his academic career, Professor Forman joined the Public Defender Service in Washington, D.C. The experience led him to co-find a public charter school to provide young people with the educational and job training opportunities his clients lacked.
