Design Class: Law By Design, End-of-Life Legal Planning
Stanford students & affiliates are welcome to apply for our new 5-session class at Stanford’s d.school: Law By Design: Redesigning End-of-Life Legal Planning.
Law isn’t typically thought of as a space for creativity or great human experiences, but this class sets out to change that.
In Law by Design, interdisciplinary teams of students will design a new generation of legal products — to help normal US consumers get in control of their legal situation: specifically, their end-of-life legal plan.
Though this process is important for protecting a person’s interests — and helping their loved ones once they’ve been incapacitated — many people don’t do it.
There has been little innovation in how people may establish end-of-life plans. The teams will have the opportunity to pioneer what ‘consumer law’ could be.
Law by Design will be a hands-on sprint to see how we can empower non-legal people with legal agency, using human-centered design.
