Legal design is a powerful method of clarifying complex legal advice or information, which can be used by clients or in court. Whether you’re summarizing or trying to grasp the essence of complicated legal information, visualization is an incredibly effective method of getting a message across convincingly, clearly and quickly, while improving both comprehension and retention. This innovative approach utilizes graphics and other visual tools to support clients’ point of view or to facilitate strategic discussion in a clear, intuitive and concise way. From summarizing and clarifying contradictory arguments to quickly grasping structures or arrangements, legal design is an extremely effective and efficient way to achieve results, whether inside or outside the courtroom.
