The Global Legal Hackathon is less than two weeks ago and the organisers have asked us for a shout out to you lovely techies reading this in New York City and San Francisco to sign up and get involved!

The GLH teams will be comprised of a mixture of mixed teams that span different practice areas, age and seniority from corporate legal departments, law firms, and vendors. It aims to help solve some of the biggest issues facing the legal industry. More tech participants are needed in those two regions.

Kick off is on Friday 22 February and the idea is that by the end of Sunday 24 February, teams across the globe will have created a working prototype of ideas that will be pitched to the judges.

This year sees the launch of Global Rise of Women in LegalTech (GROWL), which will see female mentors help to get more women involved in legal tech.

To register for #GLH2019, visit https://glh.hivebrite.com/ and select the city where you would like to participate during hackathon weekend. No experience is required, and you don’t need to be part of a team to register.
