Therapeutic jurisprudence and criminal law practice: A judicial perspective

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:06 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, February 2007 p.12
New court processes introduced through specialist or problem solving court programs such as drug courts, family violence courts, Aboriginal courts and alternative sentencing regimes have required a different approach to judging and legal practice to meet these courts' therapeutic objectives. Therapeutic processes used in such courts are also being applied in mainstream cases in criminal, civil and family law. This article discusses the principles of therapeutic criminal law practice from the perspective of a judicial officer seeking to maintain a therapeutic environment in a problem solving court and who applies therapeutic jurisprudence principles in general court lists. This article emphasises the need for the development of interpersonal skills, a broad knowledge of the interdisciplinary issues surrounding offending, a sensitivity as to the impact of court and other legal processes on a client's wellbeing, and the need for ongoing training for lawyers who take a therapeutic approach to their practice.



Australian counter-terrorism offences: Necessity and clarity in federal criminal law reforms

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:06 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, February 2007 p.20
This article analyses the wide-ranging reform of Australian criminal law related to terrorism. It compares the definition of terrorism utilised in recent legislation to the emerging international standard and tests the new federal crimes against the criteria of legislative necessity and clarity. It concludes that the reforms were in fact necessary in the sense of filling prior gaps and inadequacies in the criminal law but that some of the new provisions lack clarity and will pose conundrums for law enforcement.
