Thanks to Dean Chen for setting this blog up!! The purpose of this blog is to follow-up on David Wexlers visit and to generate some interest in the topic of Therapeutic Jurisprudence in the Louisville legal community. Here is a link to the International Network of Therapeutic Jurisprudence. It involves lawyers, judges and mental health professionals from all over the world. http://www.law.arizona.edu/depts/upr-intj/. Check it out.
I am wondering what peoples' opinions are in regards to whether they think that training lawyers in the TJ theory would contribute to improved lawyering and how including psychological information in the coursework of law students may also lead to improved outcomes for lawyers?
