Professor Lakshman Madurasinghe is a true leader. Beyond his extensive accomplishments as a scholar, author, and executive, I have seen him interact in various situations with a wide array of persons, those who had known him, and those who met him for the first time. In every one of these encounters, he displayed his trademark intelligence, grace, and that intangible quality of bringing the best out of each individual. Prof. Madurasinghe is a source of light in the world.

Prof.Lakshman Madurasinghe’s doctoral work was carried out under my supervision. I am aware of the assignment he had with The Govt.University Teaching Hospital treating patients using Cognitive Behavior Therapy to treat thousands of clients. He had many creative and unique solutions to the issues that were being addressed in Jurisprudence from a therapeutic angle. During the early eighties, particularly 1983-1985 Prof. Lakshman attended the International Law and Industrial Management programme at the University of Cambridge.
Prof.Lakshman’s research on Therapeutic jurisprudence focused on the role of the law as a therapeutic agent. He focused on the law’s impact on emotional life and on psychological well-being drawing attention on this previously underappreciated aspect, humanizing the law and concerning itself with the human, emotional, psychological side of law and the legal process.
He was able to look carefully at promising literature from psychology, psychiatry, clinical behavioral sciences, criminology and social work to see whether those insights can be incorporated or brought into the legal system. His background in Psychology and Theology helped him immensely in this undertaking.

I have been closely associated with Prof.Lakshman Madurasinghe’s research work when he was pursuing a Masters degree in Psychology with the University of Brighton. I found his diagnostic approach and clinical insights very illuminating given the fact he was closely associated with The Maharishi University, USA in its radical approach to Consciousness.
I met Prof.Lakshman Madurasinghe again in 1992 when I was The Head of Department of Psychology at the University of Hull, UK when he was at the University of Manchester following a certification on Psychometric testing during which time Prof. Cattell himself was present.
I clearly recall that he was working on Factors impacting on the design, development, and use of an effective pre-employment integrity test. His research interests were in tests and testing, and productive and counterproductive behavior in the workplace. He had also written a number of papers and had presented at international conferences on these areas.
He was also involved in the development of a personality-based measure of employee compliance (essentially an integrity test. Later in 1995, he visited UK again for further certification on Psychometrics by SHL in which I was a consultant. He shared many insights regarding testing and its introduction to the Sri Lankan market.
