Legal design thinking: the definition
Legal design thinking is the cross-discipline ofLegal Thinking, Design Thinking, Visual Thinking, User Experience (UX) Design,Pro-active Law, Co-creation and Plain Legal Language. We use these disciplines to enhance the human friendliness of understanding and applying the law, since the law is meant to create order in society and make a peaceful living and working environment for everybody.

“Understanding the context and needs of people interacting with law to adjust mindset, documents, processes and services that deliver legal empowerment and access to justice for all.”
