Our Work

The Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project (CRRJ) at Northeastern University School of Law is a mission-driven program of interdisciplinary teaching, research and policy analysis on race, history, and criminal justice.

Offering courses, fellowships, and an archive of cases, the program is the preeminent academic center for the study of historical redress in the US. Our original investigations, transformative pedagogies, and top-level scholarship facilitate local and national initiatives to uncover an accurate history of racial harms during the Jim Crow era and reconcile the ongoing damage.
