The London event of the world's largest legal hackathon takes place 23-25 February 2018
The goal is to bring the legal industry together, world-wide, to apply innovative ideas and emerging technologies to progress the business of law, or to facilitate access to the law from the public.
A winner will be declared for London and that team will go through to a global competition, culminating with a winner announced at a banquet in New York on April 21.
What is the Global Legal Hackathon?
The Global Legal Hackathon (GLH) is happening simultaneously over the weekend of February 23-25 in more than 40 cities, across 6 continents. The purpose is the rapid development of solutions to improve the legal industry using innovative ideas and emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, or the Internet of Things. The GLH will engage law schools, law firms and in-house departments, legal technology companies, governments, and service providers to the legal industry across the globe.
People can come individually or as a team, with an existing idea to pitch, or to listen and join one of the teams that will be formed at the start of the event. The goal is to come up with a prototype or proposal at the end of the hackathon to present in front of a panel of judges. The winner will go through to a global competition, with an overall winner announced in New York on April 21 2018.
The London event will be held at Pinsent Masons office at 30 Crown Place, Earl Street, London EC2A 4ES.
