A fresh start in 2022 for a new round of our „Let’s Speak Legal Design“ conversation series that Jose Fernando Torres Varela and I started last year, brought us to France and Spain! On March 1st, we discussed the latest insights on legal design with two wonderful guests: Laura Fauqueur and Maire Potel-Saville – both from France, but active as legal designers in two countries, Spain and France.
What are the differences?
We learned that France has a lot of Legal Design activities already going on and there are quite a bunch of Legal Design Agencies working as consultants already! Marie and her company Amurabi is for sure the most visible one. She ist offering a large variety of services, a new one is „litigation design“. Something that is also in Germany.
In Spain the Legal Design landscape looks quite the opposite: there are not so many activities going on yet, and Laura is the first to establish her own legal design consultancy now with „Legal Shake“. On the other hand there are some activities in the legal tech area that could be interpreted as legal design without calling it legal design.
It was a huge pleasure to talk with both guests and we are happy to continue soon with a next round!
