Event description

Description

This FREE event represents the first meeting regarding Therapeutic Jurisprudence ("TJ") in the UK.

"Therapeutic jurisprudence is an interdisciplinary field of philosophy and practice that examines the therapeutic and anti-therapeutic properties of laws and public policies, legal and dispute resolution systems, and legal institutions" (Perlin, 2017).

Whilst the TJ movement has proliferated across jurisdictions worldwide, the UK has significantly lagged behind. However, following the establishment of the UK Chapter as part of the International Society for Therapeutic Jurisprudence in 2018, awareness of the paradigm in the UK is growing. This meeting seeks to establish the next steps for launching a UK TJ Centre, which aims to build on the international work taking place to mainstream TJ by providing a central hub to foster dialogue and promote collaboration and co-operation amongst a wide range of individuals and organisations in the UK (including, but not limited to, academics, legal practitioners and other professionals). The Centre’s objectives will be:

To increase the awareness and understanding of therapeutic jurisprudence generally within the UK

To generate, support and disseminate information, research and discussion of relevance to therapeutic jurisprudence

To promote the incorporation of a therapeutic jurisprudence perspective within the UK legal system at the levels of both policy and practice.

Everybody is welcome to join our meeting - students, academics, and practitioners, those who want to know more - everyone!

The plan is to provide attendees with lunch before we spend the afternoon listening to a series of presentations on TJ in the UK (around six presentations), in addition to a tea and coffee break, and then wrap up with a discussion on next steps for the UK Chapter / Centre (and maybe even a pub trip afterwards)!

We hope that this event will allow us to hit the ground running with some ideas and next steps for TJ in the UK, and, for those of us attending the XXXVIth International Congress on Law and Mental Health in Rome (spaces still available), we can take forward these ideas forward internationally at the conference the following month.

If you are interested in TJ, want to get involved, or would simply like to know more, please consider attending by ordering a free Eventbrite ticket or email the organisers on on: ISTJChapterUK@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you there


Dr. Anna Kawalek (Trustee for the International Society of Therapeutic Jurisprudence) and Dr. Emma Jones (Member of the Advisory Board for the International Society of Therapeutic Jurisprudence).
