Therapeutic Jurisprudence concentrates on the law's impact on emotional life and psychological well-being. It is a perspective that regards the law (rules of law, legal procedures, and roles of legal actors) itself 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 it does suggest that the law's role as a potential therapeutic agent should be recognized and systematically studied.

The International Network on Therapeutic Jurisprudence is designed to stimulate thought in the area of therapeutic jurisprudence. It serves internationally as a clearing house and resource center regarding therapeutic jurisprudence developments.
The network will maintain this web page, will sponsor conferences, and, in cooperation with the Florida Coastal School of Law, will publish the Therapeutic Jurisprudence Review as a regular part of the Florida Coastal Law Review. In addition, in cooperation with the University of Puerto Rico's Revista Juridica, it will on occasion publish, in English or in Spanish, the Therapeutic Jurisprudence Forum. It will also, through the web page, call attention to recent or upcoming activities and publications of interest, and will provide links to related internet resources.
