Making Contracts More Understandable: A New Frontier for Lawyers
For many lawyers, writing complex contracts that only the initiated can understand is a point of pride. But for the non-lawyers whose lives and finances are affected by these contracts, this can be a major problem. They may not be able to understand the contract and may not have the resources to hire a lawyer to interpret it for them. However, a new generation of legal thinkers and designers are challenging this status quo and working to make contracts more understandable and accessible to non-lawyers.
