Global Legal Hackathon 2019

Earth in space, with lines over it symbolizing technology network In case you missed it, round one of the Global Legal Hackathon began on February 22, 2019. Approximately 6,000 participants met in 46 host cities around the world to spend the weekend developing innovative solutions for the legal industry. The Global Legal Hackathon is a nonprofit organization that brings together people from law schools, law firms and in-house departments, legal technology companies, governments, and legal industry service providers, to create and use technology to improve the legal industry. Working in teams, participants developed and pitched ideas for solutions in one of two categories: private sector business and practice of law, or public government, legal systems, and access to justice. Winners from the first round from each host city are listed here. The next round begins on March 25, and the final round will occur in May.
