Virtual Training: Making Restitution Meaningful

December 3, 2021

The Restitution Resource Center (RRC) is designed to help states improve their ability to effectively order, collect, disburse, and fulfill restitution sentences. On July 28, 2021, the RRC held Making Restitution Meaningful, a two-part virtual training hosted by the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI).

In both parts of the training, NCVLI staff discussed the practical side of criminal restitution litigation and collection and provided an overview of the intersection of restitution and crime victim compensation. Using information gathered from practitioner interviews, the training provided strategies to help ensure that courts order restitution that is collectible and strategies to avoid common pitfalls.

NCVLI, a nonprofit that actively promotes balance and fairness in the justice system through crime victim-centered legal advocacy, education, and resource sharing, partnered with the CSG Justice Center to create the RRC.
