Therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ) explores the effect of law, legal processes, legal institutions and legal actors upon the wellbeing of those affected by them. Offender rehabilitation is a prominent area of application of TJ. TJ has also filled a gap in legal thought and the law in action. It soon became apparent that TJ was relevant to other areas of the law. Although almost all of the early TJ scholarship originated in the United States, increasingly it is the subject of international development. A promising development is the beginning of TJ writings in various languages. TJ is now beginning to influence the nature and content of courses offered at law schools and judicial training programmes and materials. It has developed rapidly from its roots in mental health law to become an important vehicle for interdisciplinary research into the effect of the law on psychological wellbeing.
