This article performs an analysis of one mode of visual legal communication:
diagrammatics and the visualization of legal data and other information
in legal instruments and communications.
The Proactive Law movement and the Legal Design movement each
seek to transform legal instruments and documents to improve access to and
comprehension of the communication of law to all persons. “All persons”
includes both law-trained and non-law-trained persons and extends from the
literate and educated all the way to disadvantaged, illiterate, and less-thanfully
literate persons. The overall goal of the Proactive Law movement and a
primary goal of Legal Design is to improve the understanding of legal
rights, relationships, and obligations expressed in legal products, instruments,
services, processes, and systems through illustration, simplification,
engagement, and inclusiveness in the text and visual components of these
instruments and communications.
