Access to Justice by Design working group

Are you a User Experience or Interface designer with an interest in public service? Do you want to use your design skills to help millions of Californians get better access to legal help?
Access To Justice Design Sprint

Stanford Law School & are holding an Access to Justice Design Sprint — to redesign the California Courts’ official website that provides self-help resources to any Californian who wants to understand & resolve their legal problems. The website has millions of visitors every year, searching for help with their legal challenges. The Court’s staff & IT team are partnering with us to redesign how their large collection of self-help resources can be designed for more people to access, in a more user-friendly & engaging way.

We invite you to apply to join the working group of designers & legal experts that will develop new designs for the site. If you are not located in the Bay Area, we still invite you to apply to work with us remotely.

The Design Sprint will be a mix of online & in-person design work. It will include:

  1. an online design review period, in which we source new models, design patterns, and critiques of the current site, followed by
  2. an in-person design day at Stanford with designers, legal experts & court staff — in which we make final mock-ups & proposals for the court to implement.

If you are interested in participating, please apply using this form, embedded below as well. Any more questions? Send an email or leave a comment on the site.
