The Law & Design CoLab develops community-driven projects that promote design thinking, cross-sector collaboration, and innovation in Ontario’s justice sector.
We are a volunteer-run organization based in Toronto composed of professionals in UX/UI, graphic design, marketing, web development, law and public policy.
We collaborate with community stakeholders to amplify the impact of existing legal information products that have already been validated through extensive research and consultation.
Our projects emphasize user-centred design, iterative prototyping, user testing and openly sharing our work processes and outcomes.
Inspired by the success of groups like the Stanford Legal Design Lab, the UK Ministry of Justice Digital & Technology Group, and the Simplification Centre, we are exploring the potential in Ontario’s justice sector for this kind of interdisciplinary project-based work.
