-restorative justice is talked when speaking of criminal justice
-the link between the two is problem . Less about treating as equal but as treating them differently
-offenders that are satisfied and accept the consequences of their action will be less likely to commit
crime again.
-find the root of the problem
-Practical reasons: the courts have to see too many cases and people pay too much money. ADR diverts
some cases out of the formal justice system. This helps both ways since formal system becomes more
efficient and the small conflicts will be solved quicker.
