Abstract

This paper offers an integrated introduction to how, conceptually, to think about what design

assess it. It begins by highlighting three lawyerly concerns: the need to communicate; the

imaginative. Next the paper highlights three features of designerly ways: a commitment to

tangible. It is proposed that designerly ways can directly improve lawyerly communication;

once practical, critical and imaginative. The paper then provides examples of legal design in

research. Emphasis is placed throughout on the need for a critical approach to legal

avoiding, exposing and remedying biases and inequalities. In that spirit, the paper concludes

with an assessment of some of the risks associated with legal design.
