Visualizing the Law by Adam Rosman
Here is a law article from last year, by lawyer Adam L. Rosman, about how visual design can be integrated into legal documents.
He offers several different examples of how visuals may be used to illustrate and explain. The piece is written primarily to legal practitioners, to help them understand what good visual design may look like in the briefs that they write. It is a bridge between visual design and legal document composition.
