865.01 Designing Creative Legal Solutions

Can the law of tomorrow be better than the law of today? Good lawyers help their clients navigate risk. Great lawyers are creative problem solvers who tackle increasingly complex challenges faced by their clients and their communities. In this course, we’ll attack seemingly intractable legal problems to develop real, creative solutions. But, we won’t do it alone! We’ve partnered with IDEO, a global innovation firm committed to creating disproportionate impact through design. Students will first gain access to Hello Design Thinking—a 90-minute online course that introduces students to the basics of Design Thinking. Students will then join faculty Rochael Soper Adranly, General Counsel & Legal Design Lead at IDEO, Jeff Ward, Director of the Duke Center on Law & Tech, and representatives of various community organizations to apply their learning to pressing legal challenges. Our goals will be to walk away with templates for real creative solutions for our community and real creative mindsets for ourselves.
