Thursday's Diversity Forum to Discuss Therapeutic Jurisprudence

The Louisville Bar Association and the law school's Diversity Committee proudly present Professor David B. Wexler, one of the country's foremost authorities on Therapeutic Jurisprudence. This perspective regards the law  itself  (rules of law, legal procedures, and roles of legal actors) as a social force that often produces therapeutic or anti-therapeutic consequences. It does not suggest that therapeutic concerns are more important than other consequences or factors, but does suggest that the law's role as a potential therapeutic agent should be recognized and systematically studied.


Professor Wexler serves as director of the International Network on Therapeutic Jurisprudence which is designed to stimulate thought in the area of therapeutic jurisprudence and serves internationally as a clearing house and resource center regarding developments in this field. 

The event is free and open to all and will take place at 11AM on Thursday, April 1. This is the final program of the academic year in the law school's Diversity Forum Series. Professor Wexler will also be interviewed on WFPL's State of Affairs at 1 PM.
