    Due Process
    Frank Askin: A People's Prof.
    CIVIL RIGHTS ICON FRANK ASKIN: A fond farewell to teaching rarely brings kudos from the nation's highest court. But Frank Askin, though he's leaving the Rutgers Law classroom after half a century, is no retiring professor. So among the tributes as he leaves teaching: a warm public sendoff from old friend and colleague Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. On this week's edition of Due Process: A video profile and studio conversation with the dean of New Jersey's civil rights bar and long-serving general counsel of the national ACLU. Frank's passion for fairness - and his lengthy FBI file, earned during years of fighting for racial justice - came long before he thought he'd be a lawyer. Still he's leaving his mark on New Jersey law, on how law is taught throughout the country, and on 50 years of students he inspired.

    Due Process
    Community Court: A Kinder, Gentler Way?
    NEWARK’S “SOCIAL WORK” COURT TAKES A KINDER, GENTLER APPROACH. Imagine a judge who scolds as if she were your mother; offers help with your problems and applauds your success. She's Victoria Pratt, presiding in Newark's Community Court, sometimes called the "social work court." It's part of what's called "procedural justice, " a new, more creative, more effective way of dealing with low level repeat offenders. Here, there's help with addiction, with housing, with employment - for those who are ready to receive it. A possible way out of crime, without the punishment; a new way of seeing the role of the court - with a whole new kind of judge. Judge for yourself as Due Process goes inside Judge Pratt's courtroom, where human dramas play out every day. In the studio, Judge Pratt and I are joined by Rutgers School of Criminal Justice Prof. Todd Clear, author of "The Punishment Imperative."
