Allbon, E. ORCID: 0000-0003-0823-4189 (2024). Legal Design: New Opportunities for the Legal Information Sector?. Legal Information Management, 24(1), pp. 21-31. doi: 10.1017/s1472669624000069


This article by Emily Allbon introduces readers to the discipline of legal design, offering an insight into its application, its methodology, and the contexts in which it appears. There is coverage of why legal design is so pivotal for ensuring access to the law and an exploration of where it is being used: in legal practice, in academia, in public legal education and in the courts. There is also a close look at one element; that of visual contracts, and some consideration of where the legal information profession might position itself.
