Teaching ALL Law Students About Design – Making Open-Source Design Derby Materials Work for You

Date: Wednesday, July 24th from 2:00 – 2:45 pm EST/1:00 – 1:45 pm CT/12:00 – 12:45 pm MT/11:00 – 11:45 am PST

The Design Derby introduces law students to human-centered design while exploring challenges and opportunities for tech-facilitated legal services. We want EVERY student to have this opportunity, so we’ve released all the tools in an open-source repository and guide. In this webinar, we’ll share our experience running a derby, showcase and share with you the “Program in a Box” materials, and discuss how this approach can be adapted to various settings. Participants will gain insights into integrating design thinking into legal education and fostering innovation in the legal profession.
