LEGAL DESIGN & TECH LAWYERS
LEGAL DESIGN & DEFINITION
Legal design is the application of human-centered design-thinking principles to the practice of law, to make legal systems, products, services and processes more useful, useable, understandable and engaging for all.
Legal Design results in legal information, services, products and processes that are transparent, accessible, visually clearer whilst simultaneously being useable, understandable, useful and engaging. Legal Design can also address societal welfare concerns such as access to justice, assist in-house legal teams to integrate with the business function, enhance collaboration, re-shape firm cultures and transform legal education.
All our infographics are created by our attorneys at law and lawyers.

LEGAL DESIGN’ S OBJECTIVE = EFFICIENCY & SIMPLICITY
Design is a discipline centered on how to make things — communications, products, services, systems — in a way that will mean they are successful in solving human problems, addressing human needs. At its core, design is the practice of making things that are usable, useful, and engaging. The underlying idea is simple: we apply principles of design (in the broad sense, including software design, graphic design, functional design) to the law in order to improve the end user experience.
Legal Design is effective for several obvious legal challenges: making privacy policies easy to understand and accessible, meeting the requirements of GDPR, getting business people to care about, and engage with, compliance programs or negotiating complex contracts.
LEGAL DESIGN REQUIREMENTS = POLYVALENCE
METHODOLOGy TO CREATE LEGAL DESIGNS = PRAGMATIsm & experimentation
We collaborate with our clients. We want to give our them more tools to comprehend the law, legal system, spin out scenarios about how it can play out. Make the end users of legal services more empowered and intelligent. Rapid prototypes are quickly put together, shared with others and tested. This continuous testing and iterating process allows weaknesses to be weeded out early on, resulting in higher rates of successful implementation, thus saving resources. This leads to products / services / advantages that people enjoy using and want to tell others about.
The need for a pragmatic methodology arose out of our experience of complex cases such as establishing online platforms or Marketplaces. It involves design-driven research into more effective, engaging ways to communicate legal information — notices, policies, process, eligibility, and beyond — to lay people. Our design driven development uses design as part of a process to learn and better define requirements in order to build better, more informed technology solutions. It can also be looked at as a process whereby design and user experience drives the development of new models of user-friendly, accessible, and engaging legal products or services.
LEGAL DESIGN, CODING & CODING LAWYERS
There is a new class of lawyer in town – one that is just as comfortable with code as appearing in court. They are being called the “coding lawyers”, “techno-legals” by some, “lawyer-coders” or “lawyer-developers” by others. Knowing how the code works and how the development process is structured enables a better understanding of how processes are run within software businesses and how their solutions work.
The purpose of legal design is to present complex subjects in an original and fun way, sometimes with direct legal effects. Interactivity allows us to structure legal reports in a rational way and allows users to explore content according to their own interests. All our interactive solutions are created by attorneys at law.
