Voices of Justice

Feb 3, 2021 | General

A new webinar series will provide students and others interested in the field of justice with an opportunity to meet leaders who have dedicated themselves to the promise of justice. This semester, Honolulu Community College and the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa are partnering to host the speaker series Voices of Justice.

“The ideal of ‘justice’ is a cornerstone on which rule-of-law societies are built, and where human flourishing resides,” said Bill Corbett, a Honolulu CC administration of justice faculty member. “A special trust and confidence is reserved for those who serve the mission of upholding that ideal.”

“Preparing students with knowledge that will ready them for a vocation in the law is the school’s highest priority,” said Camille Nelson, dean of the William S. Richardson School of Law, who will be one of the series’ featured speakers. “The commitment to a life of purpose is real, the justice-seeking is core to the fabric of the institution.”

The speakers, who include judges, scholars, advocates, victims, diplomats and law enforcement officials, have intimately experienced justice, in the majesty of its delivery and the tragedy of its denial.

Scarlett Lewis, founder of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement, will be presenting on February 17th at 2pm HST (7pm EST). Her webinar is dedicated to the memory of all the Sandy Hook Elementary school mass shooting victims. Read more…
