OMG we are organising our biggest hackathon yet. Legal Geek has teamed up with Richard Susskind, Society for Computers and Law and The Judiciary to launch an Online Courts Hackathon.
Professor Richard Susskind OBE:
“Online courts are likely to be the most significant development in our court system since the nineteenth century, enabling far greater and affordable access to justice. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the design of online courts”

We love organising hackathons and this forms part of our Law for Good not-for-profit to help coders donate time to legal charities. In 2016 our first hackathon was themed around Law Centres and appointment management, we went on to organise a hackathon for the advice desert in mid-2016. This is our biggest hackathon yet which could literally change the way justice is delivered in the UK. Pretty amazing opportunity. Read about our previous online hackathons.
