Using Legal Design to Develop Your Trial Strategy

Learn how you can use “design thinking” to achieve better results for your clients at trial.

Originally presented:  June 29, 2023     |     Course length:  3.0 hours


WHAT’S GOING ON?
In recent years, companies and institutions have turned to designers to improve how they deliver services and programs. Given this trend, lawyers could use “design thinking” to address legal challenges in their practice and in their community.

SO WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?
The phrase “Legal Design” sounds a bit unusual. Different. Odd. Scary. Definitely not normal!

HOW WILL THIS PROGRAM HELP? 
In this seminar, you’ll learn the basic principles of legal design, the five stages common to any design process, and how you can use legal design to develop your trial strategy for your next big case.

A 90-Minute Crash Course in “Design Thinking”  (90 MINUTES)
We’re just going to assume you did not take many design courses before (or after) law school. In this session, you’ll learn everything you need to know about “design thinking,” including:

  • A very brief history of industrial design 
  • Examples of award-winning designs
  • Resources available for anyone who wants to do a “deep dive” into the world of design
  • What it means to have a “designer’s mindset”
  • The five phases of any design project


2:50 – 4:20 p.m.
Designing Your Trial Strategy  (90 MINUTES)
The best way to learn about Legal Design is to see how it can be used in a hypothetical case to develop a successful trial strategy. You’ll hear about a hypothetical trial facing a hypothetical client, and then we will take you through the five phases of the design process so you can learn the benefits of using “design thinking” to develop a winning trial strategy. Get ready to have a little fun and to step away from your comfort zone for a few minutes while you learn how to win your next trial!
