CJS 408 - Social Justice


Prerequisites: CJS 105 , CJS 106 
Social Justice investigates the relationships among and between social policy, the concept of justice and the practice of the criminal justice system. This course examines how social policy pursues different potential visions of social justice and how those visions are defined. Race, ethnicity, gender, power and marginalization issues will be addressed, particularly with regard to how those realities are affected by and how they affect the criminal justice system. Inequality and the relatively new concept of restorative justice will be examined as a means of addressing both real and perceived inequities within the criminal justice system.
