LEGAL DESIGN” DEFENDED BY THE CNIL

The CNIL defends the idea of design, or “legal design”, in the context of data protection. Legal design is the simplification and improvement of the understanding of the law to lay people (persons not resulting from a legal training) by choices made on the interface or the design of the information support. The CNIL has developed a platform called “Data and Design”. Data & Design proposes to work together with designers and RGPD actors (DPO, private/public actors, data controllers, subcontractors, etc.) to create a set of content, methods and practices to efficiently include data protection in digital product and service interfaces. This new approach would make it easier to assess the application of the principles of transparency, informed consent and the exercise of the rights of access, rectification, deletion, etc…

New skills developments for lawyers are to be expected with Legal Design.
