On November 18–19, 2017, the first Legal Tech Hackathon in Russia will be held at the Atmosphere Coworking Center in Moscow

    The organizer of the hackathon will be Moscow Legal Hackers , the Russian branch of the international community Legal Hackers, which currently has 59 branches around the world.

    Earlier in May 2017, the first CIS Legal Tech hackathon was successfully held in Kiev, bringing together more than 200 participants and guests.

    We strive to bring together lawyers who dream of ridding the profession of mechanical work and programmers who believe in the industry’s promise, help them come up with ideas that the market demonstrates need, provide resources, business expertise and see which of these grow awesome products. Legal Tech is not yet included in the investment portfolios of funds, but much has already been done to make this happen. In particular, the 2 best projects will receive seats in accelerators, as well as cash prizes from sponsors.

    Already now, students of the last courses of universities are often contacting us with a request to help in finding a job. The market reduces the workload of a junior lawyer, replacing it with high-quality technological solutions, so it's time to stop being business representatives and become a business yourself, creating jobs and doing your favorite and interesting business.

    Subsequently, Legal Tech will receive substantial money. In 2014, investors invested $ 254 million in legal tech startups in the USA. We believe that the quality of hackathon projects will be so high that most of them will continue their life and development after it, as was the case with the solutions presented in Kiev.
