Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to send you the program of the Roundtable on “Legal Design
Methodology: A Blueprint” that will be held in Brussels on April 1 and 2.



Over the last few years, the term “Legal Design” has been widely
popularised. From its first steps rooted in information design, the concept
has been applied in a variety of sectors, from contract drafting to access
to justice, online dispute resolution, development of privacy indicators,
prototyping for policy, etc. In its evolution, the field of legal design
has grown borrowing from the practice, different disciplines and
The time is now ripe to bring together all these experiences, understand,
study and discuss them.
With the Legal Design Manifesto (www.legaldesignalliance.org
a first working definition of Legal Design has been formulated: Legal
Design is “an interdisciplinary approach to apply human-centred design to
prevent or solve legal problems”. It is a purpose-oriented discipline that
identifies the gaps of protection created by emerging technologies, social
phenomena or legal rules and proposes (aka: design) solutions to empower
citizens operating in a given legal system. Legal Design Studies can
contribute to create new legal services, test existing legal categories and
theories, propose innovative methods and approaches in legal studies.
The Roundtable aims precisely to critically explore convergences and
divergences among the experiences emerged so far and draft a blueprint for
the Legal Design methodology.

The event is organised within the Module “European IT Law by Design”
(UCLouvain) and co-funded by the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Actions.

Participation is free, but registration is required.

I hope to see you in Brussels!
