Last night, I helped organize a group of lawyers & designers to kick off a longer design process, about reimagining how we convey Know Your Rights materials to lay people. We had a great mix of people who work on Know Your Rights initiatives as a part of community law groups, legal aid groups, and advocacy orgs. And we had a few designers who are interested in making legal services better.
It was an introductory session — introducing the participants to the design process & the mission of user-centered legal design. But we got to start through developing some new ideas for Know Your Rights initiatives, focusing on certain users, use cases & needs — and then brainstorming out some initial ideas.
I will write up a fuller report later — for now, here are some of the brainstorms!
