Subscript is a nonprofit with a mission to enhance legal and political decision-making of all Americans.


We synthesize legal information and deliver it concisely to the public on our website. 


Our philosophy is in our name... 

Like Gestalt Psychology, we believe people understand concepts as whole forms, or big-picture representations. 

We simplify legal concepts by zooming out and taking a look at the big picture.

Subscripts are used in chemistry and in math to present information concisely.

A subscript states the number of atoms in a molecule. 


A subscript specifies a context for a variable.

Or a particular order in a sequence.

At Subscript, we identify contexts and properties to convey the law concisely. 

We break up legal subjects by categories so we can display them in graphics.

In short, our founder studied mathematical logic before studying law, and our projects show it.
