Suffolk Law's fifth annual Legal Design Challenge, presented by Liberty Mutual Insurance, brings law and business students together to prototype products that solve legal and, often, societal problems.
In the past, we've welcomed teams to Boston for great discussion and competition and the COVID-19 pandemic prompted us to go big and go virtual in 2020. With student teams from law schools across the country and Canada, it was a tremendous success and we'll build on that for an even better 2021 challenge!
The winning entries, using the tenets of design thinking, put an emphasis on simplicity, usefulness, and the needs of the end user. The teams have only one day to generate their ideas; that time pressure tends to spur creative solutions to legal service delivery challenges.
Students from schools across the country, including Suffolk Law and Suffolk's Sawyer Business School, will participate. Several teams will take home generous cash prizes.
