Abstract

Proponents of the therapeutic jurisprudence school of law point out that legal decisions may have important psychological consequences. They propose that research should peristently examine the impact of legal decisions on the psychological functioning of individuals. Judged by letters and articles within the media, one area of legal decision making that requires such an examination is the effect that judgements within prominent civil cases may have ,on subsequent individual responsibility taking of members of the community.
