UM Law Celebrates New Therapeutic Jurisprudence Center

Congrats to colleague Bruce Winick whose new Therapeutic Jurisprudence Center debuts today.

Therapeutic jurisprudence sees the law itself as a therapeutic agent. The innovative field uses the tools of the behavioral sciences to increase the understanding of law and how it can be reshaped to minimize its anti-therapeutic effects and maximize its therapeutic potential. The field has grown enormously and has been recognized as a key scholarly approach in disciplines across the legal spectrum, including criminal, juvenile, and family law, health and disability law, constitutional law, employment law, and tort law.

There's a big party this evening over at the Lowe to kick it off.
