Abstract

Therapeutic Jurisprudence (TJ) has now attracted the attention of legal scholars in many different fields of law - very much above and beyond the areas of mental health law and criminal law and procedure. The growth has been seen in law practice as well. The International Network on Therapeutic Jurisprudence, has an extensive bibliography - with an increasing number of links to full articles - and may be searched under author, subject area, keywords, language, etc.

This short piece draws on the above-noted bibliography by listing a handful of representative articles under many different law school course offerings reflective of developments in the TJ field itself. The authors come from several countries - the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, Ireland, and Israel - and from the disciplines of law (including the judiciary), psychology, social work, criminal justice, and public health.

The list is designed to guide law faculty, law students, and lawyers who wish to consider explicitly some TJ implications of a given substantive field of law. This is a mere smattering of relevant articles, some chosen for ease of accessibility or for brevity; many of the leading articles by leading scholars are omitted in order to concentrate on some new areas of inquiry (even if the pieces introducing those areas merely scratch the surface). This entire project is and will remain a work in progress.

Keywords: therapeutic jurisprudence, bibliography
