Abstract

Therapeutic jurisprudence is the study of the law's healing potential (Wexler & Winick, 1996; Wexler & Winick, 1991; Winick, 2005; Winick, 1997b). An interdisciplinary approach to legal scholarship that has a law reform agenda, therapeutic jurisprudence seeks to assess the therapeutic and counter-therapeutic consequences of the law and how it is applied, as well as to increase the former and diminish the latter. This book chapter discusses how therapeutic jurisprudence contributes to the functioning of drug treatment courts.
