"When Should Law Forgive?"
Drawing from her recent publication, Martha Minow explores the complicated intersection of the law, justice, and forgiveness, asking whether the law should encourage people to forgive, as well as asking when courts, public officials, and specific laws should forgive. Crimes and violations of the law require punishment, and our legal system is set up to punish, but what if the system was recalibrated to also weigh grounds for forgiveness? What if something like bankruptcy was available to people convicted of crimes? Who has the right to forgive? Who should be forgiven? And under what terms?
