LAW FOR GOOD

We help legal charities use tech to improve access to justice

Like every good community Legal Geek has a social purpose. Law for Good, the not-for-profit arm of Legal Geek focuses on improving access to justice by working with legal charities to devise coherent tech strategy and access new technologies.

Lawyers and law firms have very strong probono arms and corporate social responsibility policies (CSR) around donating legal time to charities however we think these charities need technical support, as this can exponentially increase impact. Our program is to allow designers, coders and project managers and entrepreneurs to donate their time.

What do we do

Projects

We work with charities to design and deliver end to end technology projects and maximise their impact through tech.

Consultancy

We help charities understand best use of tech for their organisation and access free hardware and software

Hackathons

We organise law tech hackathons for teams of coders and UX specialists to design tech solutions for specific problems faced by legal charities. Learn more.

Speaking

During 2016 we have spoken at over 25 events including Law Centres Network AGM, PilNet Conference Amsterdam. Contact us to speak at your event or organisation. Please email hello@legalgeek.co.
