In today’s episode no. 27, I interview Meera Klemola, legal designer extraordinaire.
We discuss what Meera appreciates about design – how it can break down silos between lawyers and other professionals, allow for empathy, change mindsets and de-risk solutions.
I asked her the benefits and limitations of design thinking and how it compares to systems thinking. Meera has carefully considered all these issues through her work and postgraduate study into teaching design to non-designers, in particular lawyers. We also covered the essential ingredients of a successful design thinking project and how to evaluate effectiveness, something I’m always interested in.
If you want to hear me being put on the spot with a creativity exercise definitely tune in. You might also be surprised about Meera’s views on whether anyone can practise legal design and whether it should be taught in law schools.
Meera’s philosophy is to enable courageous change with design and technology. She is a leading expert in legal design and human-centric approach for legal professionals and teams. As a trusted advisor to global brands, top tier law firms and leading universities, Meera constantly explores the ways companies can strategically use design and technology to modernize practices and mindsets, introduce collaborative ways of working and innovate new-to-market legal services and products that are truly client centric.
Through her recognized work in the industry, Meera is a frequently invited keynote speaker and panel member at global conferences and innovation forums such as Legal Geek (Europe’s largest legal tech conference), Daimler’s ‘Digital Life Day’, Australia’s Legal Tech Conference, Finland’s Legal Design Summit and Germany’s Brand & Design Congress.
