About Subscript Law

LEGAL NEWS NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION

We are a nonprofit legal news website delivering reports in infographics.​

Our visual reports help lawyers keep up-to-date on Supreme Court decisions and other legal news quickly, and they introduce complex legal concepts to teachers, students, journalists and other non-lawyer politically-interested individuals.​

We have gained a reputation quickly, with our work being cited by NPR and SCOTUSblog and listed as an American Bar Association law “Blawg.”​

Mission & Vision

We work to smartly engage the public around legal issues.
We envision an American public that can fully understand current events, can advocate politically, and can think legally.

Problem & Solution

Recognizing the need for free legal resources was only half the battle. People have to want to read them.
Subscript Law came from the recognition that legal resources were not accessible to the public. However, just putting legal resources on the web does not make them accessible. Making resources truly accessible means increasing the public's:
  • Ability to navigate those resources.
  • Ability to comprehend & analyze them in context.
  • Willingness to read them.
  • Philosophy

    Drawing on Gestalt psychology, we believe people understand concepts as whole forms or big-picture representations.
    At Subscript Law, we use symbols to convey information concisely, in the same way a symbol functions in math. We create logos and shorthand to refer to concepts so that people can get an image without getting sidetracked by too much text or jargon.

    Our Vision

    Subscript Law’s fee-based services support our nonprofit mission to smartly engage the public around legal issues. Ultimately, the vision is to have an American public that can fully understand current events, can advocate politically, and can think legally. We have gained a national reputation quickly, and we must maintain our momentum.

    In order to build a sustainable financial model, we reached the juncture where we need to generate revenues beyond donations, building on our expertise and success in the legal information space. We will remain a nonprofit, true to our original vision, increasing our visibility and range.
