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.
