Abstract

Therapeutic Jurisprudence (“TJ”) is an approach to law which highlights wellbeing as an important component of the legal system. The aim of this Work is to prove that applying law in a TJ manner is better than the current standard procedures we are usually taught as lawyers, and we observe in courtrooms and daily life. It is better from a human point of view but also more efficient for the society ultimately. I will present a collection of examples from different jurisdictions where TJ was applied to give tangible examples. I will then interview a number of TJ professionals and present the successes and challenges they have encountered applying TJ in relevant jurisdictions.
