Those looking for an alternative to the 'lock 'em up and throw away the key' approach to criminal justice, might want to attend the second national conference on restorative justice. The University of Texas at San Antonio is hosting the conference May 13-15 and officials are expecting attendees from 10 different countries. Co-sponsors of the conference are an eclectic bunch, including everyone from School of Social Work at the University of Texas at Austin and St. Mary's University School of Law to the Baptist General Convention of Texas and the United Methodist Church.
