Can I purchase a festival ticket to attend all of the events?

Sadly we cannot offer a festival ticket. This is because when we started selling tickets we had not confirmed all of the events within the festival. We hope to be able to offer this in future years 🙂

To confirm – for 2019 you must have a separate ticket in your name for each separate event.

I can’t make it, can I have a refund or cancel my ticket?

Ah shucks, we will miss you. Tickets are no longer transferable or refundable. Approved startups tickets can only be transferred within the same company.

I have a ticket to the Legal Geek Conference, does this include access to the 'Legal Design' Geek Conference?

Afraid not, these are two separate events, so you will need to purchase a separate ticket to the ‘Legal Design’ Conference.

I am a student but I can't afford the ticket price, how can I get involved?

Students can apply for a discounted ticket or apply to volunteer at the event by completing this form using a university email address.

We have now filled all sponsorship opportunities for this event, please get in touch with us by emailing hello@legalgeek.co [yes it’s .co] to find out about future sponsorship.

Startups

Am I eligible for a free startup ticket?

Tickets are now sold out.

How do I know if I have been approved for a free startup ticket?

You will have been emailed a ticket from tickets@universe.com – all tickets have now sold out.

I have a startup ticket, does that mean I have a startup alley stand?

No. Please do not email us requesting a startup alley stand.

If you have been issued a free startup ticket you have access to the Legal Geek Conference only.

We select startups for the alley closer to the event with help of our advisors. All you need to do is apply to get your free startup ticket and we will be choosing from that list of approved startups. Startup alley pitches are selected by Legal Geek and our advisors. Startups with alley pitches will receive an email by September 2019.

If you have any more questions regarding startups please email startups@legalgeek.co

Do I need a ticket in my name?

Yes, every attendee needs a ticket in their name with a barcode / QR code. Approved startups tickets can only be transferred within the same company.

Why can we only get one free startup ticket this year?

As the ecosystem continues to grow the demand for free startup tickets has increased significantly. We want as many LawTech startups as possible to attend the event, so we are reducing the number of free startup tickets to make sure everyone has a chance to attend.

Don’t worry though, approved startups will be able to purchase additional discounted tickets for the rest of the team 🙂

How do I bring the rest of my team?

Once you have been approved for your free startup ticket, we will send you an email with a discount code to purchase additional tickets for your team.

Will I be allowed to come to future events if I was issued a free startup ticket, but don't come to the event?

If you have a free startup ticket, but can’t make the event anymore please please visit our ticketing platform Universe to cancel your ticket. More: www.universesupport.zendesk.com/cancel-a-free-order

If you do not let us know, and do not attend, you will be preventing someone else attending. We will therefore not issue you free tickets to events in the future.

For questions or additional help please email startups@legalgeek.co [yes it’s .co]

What is the dress code?

Please dress casually for this event, we have a no-tie policy and startups are encouraged to wear branded t-shirts. Everyone should come prepared to high five and make new friends 🙂
