This website is the initiative of the International Society of Therapeutic Jurisprudence.
Originally, this project was driven by an exceptionally talented Advisory Group spanning 18 countries many of whom have been at the forefront of TJ innovations in courts and tribunals for many years. This international project was coordinated by Pauline Spencer (Victoria, Australia), David Wexler (Puerto Rico) & Mike Jones (Arizona). Together the group sought to promote the use of TJ approaches in mainstream legal settings.
More recently, with the establishment of the International Society of Therapeutic Jurisprudence, we have expanded our multidisciplinary editorial team and the focus of this blog.
- Sharing knowledge – The TJ blog seeks to link the latest research and resources with the people who are doing this work “on the ground” in courts and tribunals – judges, lawyers, prosecutors, court support workers, managers and other staff.
- Building knowledge through TJ scholarship – The TJ blog also seeks to encourage TJ multidisciplinary scholarship among academics and students in law schools and other disciplines.
- Sharing expertise – Members of the International Society of Therapeutic Jurisprudence and our guest bloggers are available to share their knowledge and expertise with others who want to explore how TJ can be used in their setting and/or country.
