Event Details

Get involved in the World’s Largest Legal Hackathon.

From February 22, 2019 to February 24, 2019, over 5,000 participants from 40 host cities will participate in the Global Legal Hackathon. People will pitch ideas, form teams, and create technology-based solutions to improve access to legal services. At the end of the weekend, these teams will present their solutions to a judging panel. Ultimately, there will be one winning team at each location, where they will move on to the next round.
