9781594604355: Rehabilitating Lawyers: Principles of Therapeutic Jurisprudence for Criminal Law Practice

This book seeks to bridge the traditional divide between scholarship and practice in the field of law. It introduces the interdisciplinary perspective of therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ) and then, largely through the thoughtful and informative essays of practitioners and clinical law professors, shows how criminal law practice can be enriched -- and how clients can benefit -- from lawyers looking at their practice with a TJ lens. Lawyers can be positive change agents for many of their clients, and will find that this approach can markedly increase their own professional satisfaction and enhance their professional image.

About the Author:

David B. Wexler is the John D. Lyons Professor of Law and a professor of psychology at the University of Arizona, and a professor of law and Director, International Network on Therapeutic Jurisprudence at the University of Puerto Rico.

Review:

Rehabilitating Lawyers is the kind of smart and balanced book too often absent from the fractious debate about the future of our criminal justice system. By embracing healing as a legitimate criminal justice goal, Professor Wexler offers up an exciting new paradigm in which lawyers finally deserve the label counselor. --Robin Steinberg, Executive Director, Bronx Defenders

Wexler's collection deserves a place on the shelves of academics interested in this important area of legal education; it is a balanced well referenced source, and a great primer for this area of theory and practice. An equally important reading audience are court administrators, judges and Attorneys General who have the clout to implement some of these suggestions. --Australian Lawyers Alliance Journal

With David Wexler's anthology Rehabilitating Lawyers (2008), full of concrete suggestions..., we can say without qualification that Therapeutic Jurisprudence has arrived. More than arrived -- it is the most exciting legal movement of our time. --Mark Satin, author of award-winning book, Radical Middle: The Politics We Need Now (2004)
