Have you ever wished you had evidence on how the public perceives legal communication in your country? If so, then this session is for you. You’ll be among the first to see new empirical evidence discussing what the public wants when they read legal information. This new study, which is a follow-up to The Public Speaks: An Empirical Study of Legal Communication, targets responses from the U.S., the U.K., Canada, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. The study will gather data on such things as using legal terms of art, overusing jargon, and many other hallmarks of traditional legal language. This data will then be compared by and between countries, which will provide much needed evidence to support Clarity’s mission. Come find out what we can learn from this new evidence.
