- Using Human-Centred Design to #MakeLawBetter
Event info: Using Human-Centred Design to #MakeLawBetter How might we use the mindsets, processes, and tools of human-centred design to improve our legal systems and #MakeLawBetter for all stakeholders? Human-centred design is the secret sauce for the most powerful and effective technologies: design is integral to building solutions that solve real problems for real people. It's also a powerful creative problem-solving framework that can have meaningful impact on Legal Hackers' mission to explore and develop creative solutions to the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology. In this interactive session, we will explore human-centred design methods for creative problem-solving through a hands-on workshop led by Prof. Caitlin "Cat" Moon, following her introduction to design. Whether it's called legal design, design thinking, or human-centred design (Cat's preference), design offers accessible and practical tools we can put to use today to supercharge our work at the intersection of law and technology. Join us for a highly engaging workshop exploring design and its many superpowers.
