In January 2018, the The Action to Group on Access to Justice at the Law Society of Ontario facilitated a meeting between the CoLab and Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO). We proposed a short-term project to improve CLEO’s highly successful website Steps to Justice. Our proposal was welcomed by CLEO’s leadership team who was excited to explore this collaboration.

We began the project by visiting CLEO’s offices to conduct six in-depth interviews with staff members to develop a solid understanding of the organization’s goals, operations, and the design considerations behind the Steps to Justice website. In addition, we analyzed historical user behaviour on the Steps to Justice website and had an experienced advertising professional advise us on creating branding and marketing strategies. We ran several design exercises to synthesize our findings and scoped our project goals to match our volunteers’ skills, interests, and availability. In March, we split into three teams with each team planning a 12 week project sprint. We validated our project goals and timelines with CLEO’s leadership team.
In April, each team held a workshop with CLEO staff:
  • The UX Team developed proto-personas and explored their journey through the Steps to Justice website. They collected CLEO’s feedback on wireframe concepts for an improved mobile UX.
  • The Media team modified exercises from Google’s brand sprint to conduct a branding workshop with CLEO.
  • The Web Analytics team analyzed historical user behaviour, presented key insights, and led a workshop with CLEO staff on data analysis (Goals – Actions – Metrics – Evaluation framework ).
From May-June, each team synthesized feedback from CLEO and started to create their final deliverables. We presented our final products to CLEO in July 2018.
