Abstract

This article discusses the nature of inter-disciplinary studies and the contribution that they have made to the development of law and legal practice.

It discusses transitions from innovation to institutionalization in organizational structures and how individual disciplines can merge or coalesce to form new fields of learning. It explores two of the new perspectives that have emerged from interdisciplinary studies, in particular, therapeutic jurisprudence and non-adversarial justice. It argues that there a need to move from a ‘law and’ (another discipline) approach to understanding and solving problems to a more integrated approach to legal theory, practice and education.

Keywords: Non-adversarial justice, therapeutic jurisprudence, inter-disciplinarity, law reform, institutional innovation
