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.
We are explorers. We are doers. We are Legal Hackers.
If you're interested in legal hacking but don't live in San Diego, please visit one of our sister groups.
There's some great cross-over potential between Blockchain technology and legal innovation. IEEE (pronounced "eye triple-e") stands for the "Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers" which is a professional organization whose work affects all of our lives. For example, one thing IEEE is set standards such as IEEE[masked] which is the protocol for how Wi-Fi works (and we like Wi-Fi!).
This will be the first meeting of the local IEEE Blockchain Initiative. If you have an interest in getting involved in Blockchain stuff locally, this will be a good meeting to go to. Here is the description in their own words.
"The IEEE Blockchain Initiative (BCI) was formed in January 2018 to act as the hub for all IEEE blockchain projects and activities. The BCI encompasses a comprehensive set of projects and activities supported by the following core subcommittees: Pre/Standards, Education, Conferences and Events, Community Development and Outreach, Publications, and Special Projects. The group is interested in learning what activities the community is interested in and will overview the different BCI Activities as well as the current planned events in San Diego."
