Stanford University’s Legal Design Lab organized a one-day seminar, Law + Design Summit, bringing lawyers, judges, designers, engineers, researchers, businesspeople, and entrepreneurs together to explore how we can use a design approach to improve how the legal system operates.
The seminar featured presentations, workshops, and an exhibition. Margaret Hagan, director of the Legal Design Lab, summarized the key take-aways of the summit in this blogpost, and collected the best tweets and pictures from the event here.
Two of my projects were featured in the poster exhibition: the first showcased a prototype to transform the current instructions for using the IT2015 EKT terms (agile software development projects) into a business- and user-friendly document. The project is currently ongoing, and it scaled up to include the redesign of the instruction of all of the IT2018 terms.
The second poster featured the JYSE Visual Guide, a visual explanation of the Finnish terms and conditions for the public procurement of services. The guide was developed to support civil servants and SMEs in understanding and using the T&Cs used in public procurement. The JYSE Visual Guide was tested with users and helped them to understand the terms more accurately and quickly.
