Legal Design: Concepts, methods, norms and examples
April 2020, City, University of London
This event is organised by Amanda Perry-Kessaris, Kent Law School, and Emily Allbon, City, University of London, under the auspices of the SLSA Seminar Competition with an award of £1527.
This two-day workshop will be the first of its kind in the UK; and the first globally to address the full spectrum of legal design, including legal practice, activism, policy-making, research and teaching. It will provide a vital capacity-building opportunity for socio-legal researchers to understand and engage, intellectually and physically, with legal design; so that they are better able to use, critique and support it. Through an innovative combination of presentations and design-driven ‘making things visible and tangible’ sessions, the workshop will explore:
- How to think about legal design
- How to do legal design
- Where to find examples of legal design
- How to assess legal design
Further details will be published in due course.
