Boston Legal Design Challenge

In Partnership with Liberty Mutual Insurance

Suffolk Law's fourth 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.

We've welcomed many teams to Boston over the past few years for great discussion and competition. This year, given the COVID-19 pandemic, Suffolk and Liberty Mutual are thrilled to welcome teams of students from around the nation to this virtual event in November 2020.

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. The top three teams will take home generous cash prizes.

Registration information will be available August 2020.

Sponsor Donations

Each of the sponsors are donating a portion of the Design Challenge prize money and day of activities. Remaining proceeds will help fund student projects in Suffolk Law’s Institute on Legal Innovation and Technology.
