Comic Book Contracts

Published on 17 January 2022

So, you thought comic books were all about entertainment, right? What if they were also a way to communicate legal concepts, rights, and responsibilities so that everyone understood them and knew exactly what they were agreeing to?

That’s the remit and mission of the comic book contracts (and visual contracts) movement! It’s established a new way to conceive and create legally binding contracts. It’s already positively impacting access to justice around the world and even given rise to a whole new area of law called graphic justice!

In this, our inaugural video session in the Future 50 Series of the CLI Legalpreneurs Spotlight, we chatted with Professor Camilla Baasch Andersen. Camilla leads the Comic Contracts Team at the University of Western Australia Law School. The Team is undertaking groundbreaking research in, and applying it to, the design and use of comic book contracts in all types of business settings. They’re also connecting to and connected with this amazing initiative all around the world. You can watch our conversation with Camilla by clicking on the video above.
