We love organising events covering a whole host of subjects, but we understand the value of taking a deeper dive into specific topics. To do this, we have created a sister arm, the Legal Geek Academy and we are thrilled to announce that we will be running our first series of insightful Academy sessions at this year’s Festival! Take a look below at what’s on and how to book your tickets:

The home of LawTech, the Eagle Lab Incubator is putting on some drinks to bring startups together the day before the big Legal Geek Conference. Please note: this is for LawTech startups only. Register to attend the drinks.

Wednesday 16th: Legal Geek Conference

The main event. Our raison d’être. Your go-to LawTech and innovation fix. If you can only come to one UK event, this is it: The Legal Geek Conference. The Conference attracts 2,000 attendees from 40+ countries – last year we had 140 international, industry-leading speakers, and we even trended on Twitter! Take a look at the incredible speakers headlining our opening session for a sneak peek at the legal talent on show this year.

The 2019 Conference will feature three larger stages (including a larger in-house stage), a new digital event app to help you navigate your day, improved acoustics within the startup village, and will be single-use plastic free. Yet to secure your tickets? They’re selling out fast! Join us for a year’s networking in a day by registering for a ticket here.

Thursday 17th: Legal Design Geek Conference

We don’t want to give away the surprise completely but here’s a little spoiler alert to whet your appetite: there will be no speakers on a stage this year as the event will be 100% immersive. Think Secret Cinema meets Legal Design; you will be solving problems as a team through a series of five fully immersive workshop scenarios – yes, you heard us correctly! To make sure we have a good ratio of in-house, private practice lawyers and technologists in each workshop tickets are now by application only. 

The first Legal Design Geek Conference in 2018 was inspired by a Legal Design article we wrote back in March 2018. Five months later the event was sold out. Have you got yours yet for 2019? Apply for a ticket here.

Friday 18th: Law for Good Conference

Law for Good icon

The Law for Good Conference has a simple mission: we want to bring everyone from Access to Justice into one room and help legal charities conceive, build and execute tech solutions. Now that really does sound good, doesn’t it!? This inaugural event is set to be a hugely unifying and enlightening session as it brings together people across the sector to learn, share and inspire each other. Register your interest free here and do some #LawForGood!

Saturday 19th: 5k Fun Run

Fun Run Icon

Who knew running could be fun? Not only is it a hoot, but after a proactive week of learning and networking, it’s good to be kind to your mind with a bit of exercise! Join us on the last day of our Festival for a 5k fun run to see the week off the right way. This is a free and inclusive event to increase physical exercise and will take part in a London park. Sign up here! Please note that this is a third party event, and we will send details of the event shortly by email to those who sign up.

Keen to hear more about how exercise can impact your energy levels and influence the way you approach your professional life? Take a look at Legal Geek Founder Jimmy’s article on the 3 things he learned from completing an Iron Man and how it will influence Legal Geek.
