About

Lexagraph started as a set of class notes to help me make sense of the Code Civil du Québec. They say civil law is supposed to be clear and simple, but some sections require a hell of a lot of brain juice to understand.

About Me
I studied Law at the Université de Montréal and passed the Bar in May 2012. I have briefly worked as a lawyer, specializing in family law. I then worked for 4 years in Communications and Marketing for a network of law libraries.

I believe in access to justice, and empowering every citizen to assert their legal rights.

Reading Laws
Laws are guidebooks that tell you what rules apply if you fulfill a set of condition. I like to visualize these rules through diagrams and flowcharts. In particular, the Civil Code of Québec is written in a beautifully logical way, for those who know what to look for.
