New Article Spotlight: Therapeutic Jurisprudence and Criminal Defense Lawyers

Arizona and University of Puerto Rico CrimProf David Wexler has published Therepeutic Jurisprudence and the Rehabilitative Role of the Defense Lawyer in the St. Thomas Law Review.  The abstract state in part: "In this article, I will identify the potential rehabilitative role of the attorney from the beginning stages -- possible diversion, for example -- through sentencing and even beyond -- through conditional or unconditional release, and possible efforts to expunge the criminal record. This article has two principal purposes; first, to call for the explicit recognition of a TJ criminal lawyer, and to provide, in a very sketchy manner, an overview of that role; second, to propose an agenda of research and teaching to foster the development of the rehabilitative role of the criminal lawyer."
