Next Generation Committee

How Design Thinking Will Change The Practice Of Law

Session Synopsis:

Legal design thinking is a new and innovative problem solving methodology, which is taught in prestigious law schools such as Stanford and Harvard. It aims to improve and simplify how in-house legal teams and lawyers approach and respond to their clients’ concerns. The second Legal Design Summit took place in 2017 in Helsinki, based on the statement that “law lacks usability and legal documents are poorly designed” and not always efficiently applied. Essentially, legal design thinking is a user and human-centered approach that identifies a client’s needs, wants and desires and then uses those factors to design and develop custom fit solutions. It also involves collaboration with people from other disciplines. The results are solutions that are transparent, understandable, useful and engaging. This session, based on pre-registration, will be an “out of the box” experimental one. A hypothetical case will be presented to the attendees and the Next Generation Committee will drive a design thinking approach to solving the specific legal problems.
