ABOUT US

ABOUT LEGAL GEEK

Much has changed since the first Legal Geek event with 30 people eating pizza and drinking beer in the basement of a startup warehouse in San Francisco – yes we are a #cliche! Since then, with you always at the heart of it, Legal Geek has defined and redefined legal tech events, attracting thousands of law-gends from around the world.

We have defined a simple ethos for our events:

  • Come to make friends, not to sell
  • Dress comfortably (please, please, no ties)
  • Come to learn and to teach.
  • Look after your fellow law-gends, you may need their help someday.
  • This is your community, please pitch in and help. You will be rewarded.

We organised the world’s first LawTech startup conference in 2016 which doubled in size for three years running [500 > 1000 > 2000]. The Legal Geek Conference attracts attendees from 40 countries and has trended on Twitter (twice). In 2020 we moved all of our events online, custom-built our own event platform and started a consultancy to help others move their events online, including for the International Bar Association. 

We push for greater diversity and awareness of mental health in the legal profession. Our women in LawTech meetup group was started in 2016 and we now run a mentorship program for underrepresented groups in the legal sector. Since 2018, we’ve matched nearly 400 mentors and mentees across 29 countries.

We are working hard to reduce waste, plastic and our environmental impact. We have also created a programme to plant 2,000 trees in 2022.  You can follow our journey to going green and our sustainability programmes.

We also have a separate ‘Law For Good‘ program to support legal charities and access to justice. We offer pro-bono event support as the media partner for the ‘Law Society Rugby 7’s and Netball tournament’. In 2017 we organised the first Online Courts Hackathon’ for the UK Government with Richard Susskind and SCL.

We are the event partner of Barclays Eagle Labs, a dedicated centre for legal technology entrepreneurs, in Notting Hill. The lab aims to help legal companies start up and scale and will provide co-working space for up to 100 individuals.

We are a small team where you can have a big impact in an informal and collaborative working environment. Check out our latest job opportunities.

All employees at Legal Geek are trained Mental Health First Aiders. This is to ensure we have a better understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing for our team and attendees at our events.

We are proud to have joined 7,000 employers and become a London Living Wage Employer. This means that we pay our team and our freelancers a fair wage to meet their everyday needs working in London. 

This is part of our wider objective to help create an improved legal profession by leading by example.
