A technology driven multi-dimensional law and justice initiative

Create a question and answer app that improves access to legal information and consequently to justice.
BACKGROUND

Courting the law is Pakistan’s 1st Legal News & Analysis Portal which also offers Qanoon.pk, a case law research website and Vakeel.pk, Pakistan’s 1st verified lawyer search service. OneByte was tasked to create an app that could serve as a question and answer platform for users and supplement it by a daily article feed on legal topics. The client identified the lack of legal knowledge in the society and wanted to abridge the legal knowledge gap through technological solutions. There are no simple answers in the law which often intimidates individuals and creates a hinderance in the knowledge sharing process, top it with lawyers fees and tough language, it gets difficult to grasp the law at each step.

CHALLENGE

There is a reason why legal knowledge is not that communal. Legal language can be hard to understand as it may have various interpretations. In order to make it clear and approachable, the application had to be simple yet intuitive enough to incorporate the complexity of legal language and provide compelling user experience. To make search easy within the application, precise tags were required that could help in filtering out results so that users could get to their desired topic effortlessly.

PROCESS

To balance a simple UI/UX design with the complexity of legal language, OneByte extensively interacted with Courting the Law team in order to gauge the lawyer’s perspective while accommodating a layman user. Through a series of meetings and detailed communication, we designed an app that could not only help lawyers interact with each other and converse about law but also help other users gain information on present-day legal issues.
