I've been working as a criminal defense attourney in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, for about 8 years. Since I firts started to study Penal Law, the retributive aspect of the criminal system has always presented itself, in my understanding, a inascapable democratic paradox. Lately I've begun to study restorative justiceand mediation. I'm a Yoga practicioner and this year, through lectures, reading and movies, I came across some beautiful examples of instutituonalized recovering programs of inmates, in India and USA. I'd very much like serve as a tool to maybe offer this kind of option in the Brazilian correctional system reality if the opportunity presents itself.
