Legal Hackers (https://legalhackers.org/our-story/) launched in August of 2012. It now comprises chapters of legal tech innovators in more than 80 locations around the world, and launched in Dallas-Fort Worth in July 2017. DFW Legal Hackers meets monthly to share ideas, explore innovations in legal+tech and new approaches of working with clients and the community as well as each other to develop creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology. Through social/networking activities, hackathons, and educational workshops, we will identify ways of using technology to improve law, legal practice, and policy, as well as service to the community.
• If you work in law or technology or just have an interest in learning about the potential of innovation to transform the practice of law, join us. • If you are a student in law, analytics, business intelligence, or marketing who wants exposure to innovations in legal, join us. • If you wish to build your digital literacy and play an active role in shaping the legal landscape of the future, join us.
We are explorers, makers, doers, creators, designers, coders, developers, innovators, and hackers. We will embrace emerging technology and work to understand its applications to the practice of law. We will join with others to address limitations in the justice system. We will close the justice gap while striving to provide open and equal access to the law.
