Legal Design

Integrating Business, Design and Legal Thinking with Technology

Edited by Marcelo Corrales Compagnucci, Helena Haapio, Margaret Hagan and Michael Doherty

This innovative book proposes new theories on how the legal system can be made more comprehensible, usable and empowering for people through the use of design principles. Utilising key case studies and providing real-world examples of legal innovation, the book moves beyond discussion to action. It offers a rich set of examples, demonstrating how various design methods, including information, service, product and policy design, can be leveraged within research and practice.

Legal Design is a movement to make the law work better for people. This chapter makes the case that Legal Design constitutes a new attitude to law that reveals potential benefits in making law more participatory and human-centered. Despite its often radical departure from culturally inherited perceptions of what legal services look like and involve, Legal Design involves a turning towards law's virtues of certainty, direction, order and justice. The diverse applications of Legal Design in this collection show that it brings new opportunities to, in Dworkin's phrase, cast law in its best light. These contributions range across prototyping policy, proactive lawyering and effective contracting, the law/design cultural relationship, intellectual property, consumer and tenant protections, dispute resolution and legal education. The collection comes at a time when Legal Design is still in its emergent phase as a cognate field of activity, a new sub-discipline, and it contributes to the ongoing dialogue on the methods, mindsets and goals of Legal Design.

In this collection, contributors provide critical analyses of judicial complaints and discipline systems in thirteen diverse jurisdictions, revealing that an effective and legitimate regime requires the nuanced calibration of numerous public values including independence, accountability, impartiality, fairness, reasoned justification, transparency, representation, and efficiency.

The Art of Mooting

Theories, Principles and Practice

Mark Thomas and Lucy Cradduck

This book examines the theories relevant to the development of skills necessary for effective participation in competition moots. By consideration of underlying theories the authors develop unique models of the skills of the cognitive, psychomotor and affective domains and effective team dynamics; and emphasise the importance of written submissions. The authors use this analysis to develop a unique integrated model that informs the process of coaching moot teams according to reliable principles.
