Legal design

Sebastian Greger

As a rather young discipline, “legal design” brings together legal practice and design: most commonly it refers to lawyers using design methods in their work – my core interest is (in the other direction?) the interactive design of legal artefacts.

  • Deceptive patterns: Often referred to as "dark patterns", deceptive patterns are manipulative design solutions that aim to motivate users to actions that are against their intention and often their personal benefit. Commonly dismissed as unethical among designers, they have a legal relevance as well.
  • Definitions: Collecting sources and resources discussing a variety of perspectives on "legal design".
  • Projects: A growing list of legal design showcase projects, large and small – for reference and inspiration.
