Can graphics promote better understanding of legal information?
The rule of law is a central principle in our legal system. In order for the rule of law to operate effectively, it is important that all citizens have equal access to justice.
The concept of ‘graphic justice’ is an emerging one that may present both challenges and opportunities for the legal system. Graphic justice: pictures worth 1000 words explores how legal practitioners, companies and advocacy groups are beginning to apply ‘design thinking’ and ‘graphic justice’ principles to help people better understand and navigate the law.
This exhibition examines real world examples that illustrate how ‘graphic justice’ can apply in civil and criminal law to support equitable access to justice in both civil and criminal contexts.
