How justice 'Gets Done': Politics, managerialism, consumerism, and therapeutic jurisprudence
Jeffries, Samantha (2005) How justice 'Gets Done': Politics, managerialism, consumerism, and therapeutic jurisprudence. Current Issues in Criminal Justice, 17(2), pp. 254-268.
How criminal justice ‘gets done’ ultimately depends on the social context at any given historical moment. This paper: a) highlights how adversarial sentencing practice which has traditionally sat in the domain of Australia’s criminal courts is changing with moves towards therapeutic jurisprudence, i.e. problem-solving courts and restorative justice, b) outlines what social and theoretical forces are contributing to these modifications, c) provides a challenge for government, policy makers, criminal justice personnel and the public to consider more closely the positives and negatives of the changes taking place.
