Abstract

Legal development work suffers from a general lack of interdisciplinarity and from the associated dominance of economics. A more sociologically informed meta-framework, such as that offered by the emergent field of economic sociology of law (ESL), is required. But if it is to be robust, widely applicable and open to challenge, such an econo-socio-legal approach to development must be accessible across disciplines; and among academic, practitioner, and public audiences. The reach of such a new approach could be radically improved using graphic design techniques such as typography and information design.

Keywords: graphic design, law and development, economic sociology of law
