AUGP Therapeutic Jurisprudence centre functions as an independent global centre that shares articles, research, commendations, and critiques generated from diverse forums worldwide to educate our students, members, and connected legal institutions regarding the value of Therapeutic Jurisprudence. We also have access to our own Neuroscience Centre and its sophisticated equipment for additional research.

Thus, AUGP has been a strong proponent worldwide in adopting the use of more comprehensive, psychologically optimal, and emotionally intelligent means of dealing with conflicts.

This does not mean that AUGP supports the position that common law systems should abandon their adversarial models or that civil law systems abandon their inquisitorial approach. It does mean that we propose new processes to be added to the range of existing processes—such as in the use of mediation in civil, criminal, and family law cases and the establishment of special intervention courts or lists to address broader issues underlying legal problems where such an intervention is consistent with other justice system principles.
