In the literature on the subject, legal design is perceived primarily as a graphic tool for obtaining more readable and accessible legal documents. In this article, I take up a polemic with this approach, pointing out that legal design can be an important indicator of social change. By harnessing inclusive, participatory, and social design methods and incorporating non-design areas of the market into the area of design thinking, the legal design allows for the decentralization and democratization of design.
