Contract Design Workshop: Let’s Create a World Where the Law Makes Sense Past Event

Presented by Verity White & Melanie Thomas

The law is confusing.

Lawyers write contracts and legal advice in dense legalese.

Clients who can afford legal advice, often end up paying for something they don’t completely understand.

Lawyers are stressed and unfulfilled.

It’s time the legal industry collaborated and learned from the world of design to create legal advice and contractual documents that help clients instead of bamboozling them!

Be inspired as you explore examples of innovative visual design that is exploding within the legal industry around the world.

Contracts, legal advice, and legal information can be beautiful!

It can be insightful instead of fear-inducing!

We see a world where all contracts are easy to read and easy to take action on.

We see a world where legal advice is structured clearly and logically.

Lawyers need designers + designers need lawyers.

It’s a match made in heaven!

  • Lawyers will get the chance to learn about the emerging field of contract design and legal design

  • Designers will get the chance to understand key contract terms for their client work
