Contracts your client’s client understands: Using Legal Design to create easy to negotiate and easy to implement contracts: Learning by doing is the best way forward: in this module, we’ll take a real contract, such as an NDA or general terms & conditions and, step-by-step, make it a real business tool, that business people will want to read, while retaining its full legal scope. Applying a user-centric approach, we’ll first clearly identify the (non-lawyer) users of the contract, understand their user journey as regards this contract and learn how a combination of user-centric restructuring, plain language and design can make it much easier to negotiate and fully actionnable.
- Course 3 – 09:00am to 11:00am
Designing Law for the Internet: A user-centric approach to data protection and privacy policies: “User experience ends when legal issues start.” That’s the common perception: privacy policies would have to be those long blocks of text that you just blind sign. This is completely misguided for 2 reasons: (i) the key European data privacy regulation (GDPR) imposes that a valid consent be based on “clear, accessible, intelligible” information, that’s “concise and not too technical” and (ii) your end customers are tired of those inintelligible documents imposed on them.
- Course 4 – 11:15am to 1:15pm
Tapping into legal creativity – a necessary skill for future legal professionals: According to the World Economic Forum, creativity will be one of the most important and in-demand skills for organizations and individuals in 2020 and beyond. A creative mindset is increasingly needed to tackle diverse and complex business challenges – in law or otherwise. The need to do ‘ever more with ever less’ requires lawyers, particularly those working in-house, to be more creative and agile in their approach to meet business expectations. In this module, you’ll learn concrete techniques to help you and your team build legal creativity. You’ll also unlock a library of key resources to help you immediately create legal presentations and training that will resonate with your clients and provide a new perspective on what law can be.
