On 22 January, Susanne van der Meer will be giving a workshop on imagery for legal advisers.  In legal practice as well as in education and research, visualisation and infographics are increasingly being used to make legal information transparent and user-friendly.

Event details of Workshop Imagery for lecturers in Academic Legal Education
Date 22 January 2019
Time 09:30 -16:00

The workshop will familiarise lecturers with the possibilities in education and teach them to create imagery and use it in their courses. The workshop is intended for all lecturers at the Faculty, but can also be relevant for researchers who wish to work with imagery.

Workshop participants will: 

  • Get acquainted with various forms of legal visualisation and the opportunities that legal visualisation offers for education
  • Learn to create diagrams to support teaching material and lectures
  • Develop legal visualisation assignments and other visual teaching methods for students
  • Learn how students can be supervised and assessed when completing legal visualisation assignments. 

The workshop on 22 January will consist of two parts. The first part will take place from 9:30‑12:00. In the second part from 13:00-16:00, participants will work on more in-depth practical exercises aimed at creating their own legal infographics. It is also possible to follow the first part of the workshop without attending the afternoon session.

The workshop will be given by Susanne van der Meer, founder of Legal Visuals and author of Beeldtaal voor Juristen, grafische modellen om het recht toegankelijker te maken (Imagery for Lawyers: using graphic models to make law more accessible).
