About Subscript Law
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 and 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 and 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 and analyze them in context.
Willingness to read them.
Subscript Law’s publications connect with the American public’s renewed interest in politics. We publish one-page graphics on trending legal and political issues. Through easy-to-digest graphics with minimal text, we gradually introduce people to more complex layers of legal analysis.
