Work with us
We are always looking for people to work with on future projects. If you’d like to collaborate with us on extending an existing TLDR resource (e.g. one of the properties in Coltsfoot Vale perhaps?) or have an idea for something new and never-seen-before, then talk to us! Our vision for TLDR is a site packed full of examples from members of the legal education and legal design communities.
We are currently designing a module for our students, here at the City Law School, in legal design and will be on the lookout for challenges for our students to work on. If you think you'd be interested in getting involved with this, please get in touch.
We run an annual sprint for students and interested parties in collaboration with Method, the global design agency. You can read all about the 2018 sprint with Justis on their site and also on Lawbore
Emily works on legal design projects with a wide range of different organisations and individuals. We’ll be adding a special section on this before the end of the year, with lots of examples of process and output.
Interview with the creator
In June 2020 Emily was interviewed about TLDR by the Learning at City blog, where she went into detail about her motivations, inspirations and future intentions for the gallery.
For those of you who are interested in knowing more about legal design there is lots out there to help and inspire you! Here are a few favourites:
- Margaret Hagan’s Law by Design book and also her Open Law Lab for insights into the amazing range of projects she has got off the ground.
- The IACCM Contract Design Pattern Library is a fantastic initiative from Stefania Passera and Helena Haapio, helping us learn a range of different design patterns and seeing how they have been implemented into real contracts.
- The Legal Design Alliance was formed to bring together a network of those working in the legal design sphere, whether lawyers, designers, technologists, academics or other related professionals. There are reading suggestions and examples of work to get you started.
