Getting to Access to Justice: Bridging Regulatory Reform and Human-centered Design & Innovation 

Oct. 29, 2019
Vancouver BC

Veuillez notez, cet événement sera disponible en anglais seulement.



Professor Margaret Hagan, Director, Legal Design Lab Lecturer in Law, Stanford University, proposes a strategic approach that bridges regulatory reform and human-centered design & innovation activities. Her approach challenges lawyers and other stakeholders in the justice system to support regulatory reform as well as engage in more experimentation in their own practices. 

She’ll share examples of policy change and experimentation which have generated the most impact and encouraged access to justice action. This topic is particularly relevant to the legal community in BC given our cutting-edge innovation and recent access to justice initiatives.
