Creativity is the New Law. Here's how!

We bring together lawyers, in-house counsels, startup founders, and community organizations eager to reinvent the way law is practiced and to deliver an attractive, engaging and outstanding experience to users of legal services and products.

This creative journey to develop and implement innovative solutions requires clarity and bravery in action. The Legal Creatives community is here to support you, celebrate you, and encourage you to become thought-leaders, catalysts for change and influencers at your law firm, within your organization and in society.

We believe in the power of community. We believe in the power of connexions and sharing with like-minded people. We believe success comes from thinking bold and daring to challenge the statu quo. We believe creativity is bravery in action. And this is why we believe in celebrating together the success you will have on this creative journey.

How it all started. 

The Legal Creatives was created in July 2017; it was pre-launched in August 2017 in New York on the occasion of the ABA Annual Congress. One month later, Legal Creatives was selected by the Web Summit for its incredible potential for impact and growth. It was featured in November 2017 at the biggest tech conference in the world, where the platform was launched in November 2017 in Lisbon.

Tessa Manuello (@tessamanuello), instigated Legal Creatives out of a desire to reimagine the legal experience and also deliver a better access to justice through creativity. Before starting Legal Creatives, Tessa carried a worldwide research on access to justice and noticed the potential of creativity to bring hands-on solutions to the challenges in the industry.

In 2016, Tessa Manuello gathered hundreds of legal professionals and law students for a creative event series in Montreal Canada, featuring speakers and refreshingly new ideas. Since then, she has taken this movement worldwide, traveling to inspire, to teach and to train legal audiences globally.

In 2018, Carol Hannud (@carolhannud) joined in this global journey from São Paulo (Brazil) to reinforce this educational platform and help the community of Legal Creatives carve the way forward for law at a global level.
