As acknowledged in Therapeutic Jurisprudence (TJ) literature, lawyer’s actions can have important consequences for defendants. Defence lawyer received particular focus in TJ literature, and techniques have been developed to enhance their clients’ emotional well-being and readiness for rehabilitation. This book chapter, in a new Routledge publication: “Positive Criminology”, looks at the role of defense lawyers, particularly those who represent youth defendants. The aim of the chapter is to add to the pool of knowledge on the topic by turning to a concept referred to as “positive criminology” and reexamining the therapeutic consequences lawyers can foster in young defendants by merging relevant aspects of each concept.
