      EVENT DETAILS
      Martha Minow - When Should Law Forgive?

      Former dean of Harvard Law School, Minow is one of our most highly respected legal scholars and a tireless advocate whose work on behalf of war refugees, students with disabilities, and the poor includes serving as chair of the Pro Bono Task Force of Legal Services Corporation. Her book is an eloquent and compassionate investigation of the law’s relation to forgiveness. Considering contrasting legal treatments of corporate and student debt, the different outcomes for juvenile offenders in the U.S. and child soldiers in international courts, and other issues, Minow outlines protocols for when the best way to address justified grievances is to let them go.
