Abstract

This essay proposes that correctional institutions expose interested inmates to programs involving elements of restorative justice,therapeutic jurisprudence, and relapse prevention planning, culminating in a transition and relapse prevention plan that can form the basis of a proposed parole plan. Then, the prisoner about to be considered for parole can try out the plan before peers in a Reentry Moot Court. Such an exercise should be of practical and rehabilitative use both to the prisoner defending his or her plan and to the peer prisoners who will hone their own problem solving skills by participating in the Moot Court process.

Keywords: therapeutic jurisprudence, restorative justice, parole, rehabilitation, moot court
