What we're about
Interested in the future of legal services, legal education and legal technology? The legal industry is changing rapidly and these changes present exciting opportunities and daunting challenges for industry members. We'll meet once a month to explore new ideas and build a thriving legal hacking community in Vancouver.
Legal Hackers is a global movement of lawyers, policymakers, technologists, and academics who explore and develop creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology. Through local meetups, hackathons, and workshops, Legal Hackers spot issues and opportunities where technology can improve and inform the practice of law and where law, legal practice, and policy can adapt to rapidly changing technology.
