CLI launches Legal Design Collab

Published on 24 March 2023

The Centre for Legal Innovation (CLI) is delighted to announce the launch of its Legal Design Collab (LDC) in collaboration with LD guru Melissa Lyon, Executive Director & Experience Designer at Hive Legal, who will also host this LD community meet up.

The inaugural session is on 28 March at 1pm-2pm AEDT – registration is FREE and can be found here.

“User centred design is THE critical differentiator for every service industry today – the legal ecosystem is no exception,” Terri Mottershead, Executive Director of the CLI at the College of Law, says. “We hope the LDC will become a place where legal experience and user-centred designers (and those who aspire to be) … connect and collaborate. Every question will be answered, and together we’ll work towards finding solutions for even the most complex issues. We're thrilled to have someone as experienced as Melissa Lyon leading this for us, and that the LDC will provide real, practical support for LD initiatives locally, nationally, and globally.”

As Melissa Lyon explains, LD cannot be tackled in isolation – collaboration is the key to creative problem solving.

Collaboration is a critical element of LD so, what better way to put that into practice than to bring together legal designers from around the world to share, inspire and support each other,” Melissa Lyon says. “I am really excited to be hosting the LDC because I am curious to learn more about all of the ways that LD is currently being used to improve user experience and thrilled to provide an opportunity for us to think about more ways it can play a valuable role in the future of our legal ecosystem.”

The LDC is offered through CLI's Legalpreneurs LabLegal Design Thinkers Special Interest Group (SIG), membership for the SIG is FREE.
