Our group has been creating icons that courts, information sites, and any other legal help group can use for free, without attribution. We’ve specifically made these icons to represent legal things.
Please find the ‘thing’ to be represented, and then choose from the icons we provide for you to use.
Do you need to present legal problem, issue, and question areas? These icons give you a consistent way to do so.
Use these icons to convey major legal issue areas.
Do you need to present specific tasks, things, and other elements of legal processes? These icons can help you.
Use these icons to convey a document-related task.
These depict the provision of different services to people.
These visuals represent different parts of how people make choices, get guidance, and are reminded as they go through tasks in the process.
Court & Institution Icons
These represent the legal system and its institutions
They cover different things that don’t belong to a clear category.
Task-based icon scheme
Do you need to create a Visual Icon Stylesheet for your site or app?
For our Navocado project, our Legal Design Lab made these standard sets of icons and have been using them to signify standard parts of a legal process. Here is the icon stylesheet that we made for use on our site.
You can create a similar scheme for your own website. To do so, here’s a short guide.
- Review what the key topics are, that you regularly need to convey to your users.
- List them out, and then pattern them into categories. Each of those should have the same background color.
- Now decide an icon to represent each of these topics, and create an annotated list (like the one here) that defines what the icons are, and what they represent.
- Your design-development team can use this to use the same icons across all materials online and in print.
