In particular, we’re looking for tech volunteers with computer science or civic hacking experience in the following areas: Design thinking Data management Technology solutions Technical design A light dinner will be provided to nourish our creative problem solving.

What we're about

Technology bustles ahead, but our legal tools and tech policy hardly reflect this. What gives? This monthly meetup challenges Legal Hackers to find creative solutions to some of the most interesting issues at the intersection of law and technology. Join us (http://www.meetup.com/DCLegalHackers/about/) as we tackle tough problems and create tangible solutions at a variety of interactive events, including: discussions, keynotes, demos, workshops (yes, coding), and quarterly hackathons. Our meetings will be aimed at creating proposed resolutions on the spot, so bring your brains and your portable computing devices!
