Summary

The J. Reuben Clark Law School recently announced the creation of LawX, a legal design lab focused on making legal services more accessible and helping the public better understand their legal rights.

LawX is the nationally acclaimed law school’s solution to the increasingly difficult legal landscape and costs thrust on Utahns facing lawsuits.

LawX traces its inception to Margaret Hagen, a Stanford Law School professor. Hagen spoke at BYU’s Future of Law lecture series on Oct. 12, 2016 about the Stanford Legal Design Lab.
