In a new TED Talk, Judge Victoria Pratt draws on her experience with Newark Community Solutions to explain the real-life impact of procedural justice.
“It’s a concept that says if people perceive that they are treated fairly and with dignity and respect, they’ll obey the law,” says Pratt.
The experience of Newark Community Solutions suggests that by addressing people respectfully, using plain language to ensure understanding, allowing defendants to voice their concerns, and emphasizing neutrality, justice agencies can help restore public trust in justice.
