Faegre Drinker’s new e-book “Design Thinking and Visual Advocacy for Lawyers” is an innovative resource that introduces legal professionals to concepts of design thinking and visual advocacy. The e-book is available for free download on Faegre Drinker’s website or from Apple Books.
“Design Thinking and Visual Advocacy for Lawyers” delves into the background of legal design, offering tips on applying design thinking to everyday work, and explaining how concepts of visual advocacy can be used in the practice of law.
Intellectual property partner David J.F. Gross authored the e-book, with support from fellow IP litigators Helen Chacon and Kate Razavi, each founding members of Faegre Drinker’s Design Lab.
As an official partner with Stanford University’s Legal Design Lab, Faegre Drinker’s cutting-edge design thinking initiative helps clients succeed by “thinking like designers.” The firm’s Design Lab team leads design sprints that help solve complex legal issues and creates visual advocacy events, seminars and courses to help lawyers communicate more effectively in all aspects of their jobs.
Harvard Law School Center on the Legal Profession’s The Practice profiled the firm’s design thinking program in the article, “Designs on the Law,” which highlights Faegre Drinker’s successes in developing its own Design Lab and training lawyers and consultants in human-centered legal design.
Today, Faegre Drinker’s Design Lab team members have hosted design sprints and visual advocacy training sessions for multiple client teams, including Facebook, NetApp, Seagate, U.S. Bank and other leading companies. They teach a recurring visual advocacy course at the University of Minnesota Law School and have recently joined forces with Santa Clara University School of Law to bring legal design activities to students.Download the full release.
