Episode 139: Learning How to Forgive

“I’ve been teaching law for almost 40 years. And I recently realized we don’t really teach people in law school about the tools of forgiveness that are built into the legal system.” 

Today, we’re talking with Harvard law professors Dehlia Umunna and Martha Minow about when and how the law should forgive.

Martha Minow's latest book is When Should Law Forgive.
