Discover legal design today with The Legal Design Book.

A Fun & Inviting Layout
At the heart of legal design is the goal to create engaging, easy to understand and user-friendly legal information while simultaneously elevating the legal client experience. As such our book embodies these values and includes fun visualizations designed by Tobias Heumann. It is not your standard legal book.
Our goal is to make the content easy to access and underline our mission as legal designers: to use design to make the law transparent, user friendly and easy to understand.
Who should read this book?
The Legal Design Book should be read by those who are curious, intrigued and interested to do things better. Legal design is not dependent on any jurisdiction. The following readers may particularly enjoy this book:
- Any lawyer, from any practice area with an interest in client-centric service transformation (i.e obtaining more clients).
- Any lawyer, from any practice area looking to distinguish themselves from the competition with additional knowledge
- All Legal Innovation, Legal Ops and Legal Tech Managers
- All Partners at law firms – particularly those interested in client development, business development and establishing competitive advantage. It will appeal instinctively to partners who are future focused.
- In-house counsel tasked with increasing efficiency, reducing costs and delivering client-centric solutions.
- All legal partners at professional service provider firms (e.g KPMG, EY, Deloitte)
- Law Schools
- Law students and Professors from Universities
