The Non-Adversarial and Therapeutic Justice Center


The Non-Adversarial and Therapeutic Justice Center (NATJC) was founded in 2015, by Dr. Karni Perlman at the Striks Law Faculty, The College of Management Academic Studies (COLMAN).

The center, first of its kind in Israel, has been established out of recognition of the changes taking place in the world and in Israel, with the goal of serving the academic and professional communities (judges, lawyers, mediators, evaluators, social workers) and to grant those communities with knowledge, tools and added value in the areas of collaborative law and therapeutic justice.

The NATJC’s main goals include;

  1. Developing research in the fields of collaborative and therapeutic justice;
  2. Promoting public discourse in Israel on issues involved in non-adversarial and therapeutic jurisprudence;
  3. Contributing to the design of a high standard and efficient professional practice for those involved in handling collaborative proceedings;
  4. Encouraging local and international initiatives with respect to Collaborative Law and Therapeutic Justice.

Collaborative Law & Therapeutic Jurisprudence

Collaborative law adopts a non-adversarial approach that deals with the needs and interests of parties to a dispute, and the pursuit of an agreed solution that meets the maximum interests of both sides. A common form of collaborative non-adversarial process is Mediation: an interactive process where an impartial third party, a mediator, assists disputing parties to settle a conflict or reach mutual agreement through the use of collaborative practices, specialized communication and negotiation techniques.

Therapeutic Jurisprudence (also known as “TJ”) is an interdisciplinary field adopting a collaborative approach with the aim of reaching restorative and rehabilitative results, as well as the psychological well-being of a party to the conflict and shaping of its future behavior. TJ observes the “therapeutic” and “anti-therapeutic” properties of laws, public policies, legal procedures, dispute resolution systems, and legal institutions.
