Collective Thinking, For Freedoms - Aperture Foundation NY | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Aperture has invited the artist-run super PAC, For Freedoms, to curate and implement an improvisational exhibition and series of dialogues that investigates the photographic collective as a model for responsive artistic production.

NuLawLab | Redesigning Housing Court

NuLawLab | Redesigning Housing Court | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Our courts are out of balance. A judicial system premised on the concept of professional representation is now increasingly deciding cases in which at least one side is not represented by counsel. In some instances, all parties have lawyers. In others, some litigants have lawyers and some do not. In many matters, none of the parties have the assistance of counsel. 

In every instance, people and organizations are seeking resolution of critical disputes ranging from basic shelter to child custody to payment for damages, and everything in between. Although our justice community has responded with, among other things, a significant expansion of resources for unrepresented litigants, it remains the case that the current system was designed for a reality that no longer exists. The time is right to rethink how our courts do business, and reconsider the structure of our judicial system, so that it can better meet the needs of everyone involved. 

A partnership of three organizations – The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Trial Court, Northeastern University School of Law’s NuLawLab, and the premier design and innovation consultancy IDEO – is ready to tackle a fundamental redesign of formal conflict resolution for an age when legal representation is no longer assured. 

Our process will leverage the application of service and system design methodologies to approach the challenge from the perspective of the full range of end-users of our courts – represented and unrepresented parties, attorneys, judges, clerks and administrators, jury members, and many others. The targeted outcome of our project is a fully redesigned trial court experience that, after sufficient evaluation, could be scaled geographically and substantively to other trial court departments across Massachusetts as well as other jurisdictions across the country.
