The UB School of Law’s clinical program’s Juvenile Justice Project (JJP) faculty and students met with with Walter Lomax who leads the Maryland Restorative Justice Initiative. The students attended a meeting of former inmates released under the Maryland Court of Appeals decision in State v. Unger. JJP student attorneys talked with former inmates, their families and social workers about the challenges they have faced in the transition from prison to the outside. These conversations will assist JJP student attorneys in arguing for release of their clients, who have been incarcerated since they were juveniles, before the courts and the Parole Commission.
