Contract Design School for change-maker lawyers

The ultimate course for simplifying and visualizing user-friendly contracts

Contract Design School is a new 5-week course that gives lawyers the tried and tested processes for designing user-friendly contracts. It includes:

  • Five live sessions
  • Six modules covering every step of the contract design process
  • Plus a members-only community.

so you can work at your pace.

You’ll learn the designerly lawyer mindset, and get the framework, the templates, and all the tools you need to create contracts your clients will actually understand.

Traditional contracts are confusing for clients - but they don't have to be

You’ll change that with smart contract design

Contract design gives you confidence in your contract solutions

🖋

Contract design is a skill that gives you the assuredness to craft contracts in the way your clients will best understand. Contract design empowers you to ask the right questions and provide solutions that work - despite what the old guard might say.

🧡

Even with no experience in contract design, legal design, or graphic design, you’ll finish the course feeling inspired and sure of your ability to start designing user-friendly contracts - and build a base of loyal customers.

Contract design is a step by step method - with tools and templates

Contract design is a concrete process with an established system and path to follow for designing contracts. It doesn’t take any longer than traditional contracts - it’s a simple change in approach that’s more efficient than traditional drafting - with much better outcomes.

The course is hands-on and will take you through the entire design process from start to finish. You’ll cover user research, how to design a contract prototype, and validate it with users. You’ll learn how to simplify language without losing its meaning at law as well as how to visualize contracts for user-friendliness and readability.

You’ll learn the processes, how to use the tools and the step-by-step approach to every design scenario.

A note from your teacher:

I’m a values-driven ex-corporate lawyer, law firm founder, and contract geek.

  • I understand the frustration clients have with contracts: Confusion, legalese and endless negotiation.
  • I also know how it feels as an everyday lawyer who’s buried in paper and thinking “there’s gotta be more to it than this.”

Frustrated with watching the churn and burn that exists in traditional law, I started Lawyers Design School (and now Contract Design School) to show lawyers like you there’s a real and human alternative to practicing law - legal design.


Contract design is one part of legal design - and the designerly lawyer mindset.

As an in-house counsel, I wanted work products to make sense, be understandable and add value to the customers. I fell in love with the concept of putting the user first, by making the law more human and accessible. I had a fire in my belly for writing contracts people would read and understand. Once I started my own law firm I applied a different business model based on value-based pricing. This drove me to be as efficient as possible, for example creating templates to enable finding relevant information quickly.

Contract design is the key to change. You can bring humanity back to law and make efficiency serve our purpose.

Legal design has literally transformed my working life.

I’ve experienced firsthand how a different lawyerly mindset can transform your career, rekindle your love of the law, and make a meaningful difference to the customers you serve.

I want to share that with you.

If you’re a lawyer who’s ready to embrace a shift in thinking and take a leap toward practicing law the way you always wanted,
you’re in the right place.

I look forward to meeting you personally inside Contract Design School.
