Beschrijving van het evenement
Excited to tackle today's legal challenges with a technological solution and shape the future of tomorrow?

Over dit evenement

Ghent University organises the third UGent Legal Techathon from 18 through 20 February 2022.

During this event, technology and law are combined in an innovative way. Law students and students in the engineering and IT sciences work together to create a technical solution for a legal problem.

It is possible to apply as a team or as an individual, with or without your own challenge. We will start the bootcamp with a matchmaking session in order for all teams to start off fair and square.

After the kick-off, you and your team mates receive 36 hours to work together to achieve a 'proof of concept' of your product. As a team, you use those 36 hours however you see fit: you choose how, what and where to work. Perhaps you want to take a sleeping bag along and work deep in the night, or you'd rather go back home to recharge your batteries. Everything is allowed! Meals, snacks and drinks throughout the entire event are provided.

Legal and tech coaches from both academia and the corporate world are present to lend you their advice and expertise during these 36 hours. The emphasis is not on solving difficult questions in a definitive way, but rather to learn how to think out of the box and experience the value of working with people from different disciplines. Motivation and an appetite for teamwork are the most important aspects.

The presence of these well-known and experienced coaches means that the Ghent University Legal Techathon is a perfect opportunity for you to network. We will organise networking opportunities during the first and the last day, in order for you to gain insight in future opportunities.

Let us not forget the prizes either! The winning team is awarded 2.500 euros by law firm De Groote – De Man who received the 2017 award for most innovative law business by the Financial Times. What is more, it will also gain access to the 'pitch round' of the Ghent University's acclaimed startup programme, Expedition DO!, if they would like to develop their techathon idea even further.”

So don't hesitate and just apply. We will let you know as soon as possible whether you (and your team) are selected so keep 18 till 20 February free in your calendar!

Applications are open until 10 February.

The event will take place offline if possible and online if need be.

Important note: if you want to register as a team, please have ALL team members apply seperately. You will be able to make the link with your other teammates as part of the application process. A minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 team members per team is required.

The Legal Techathon 2022 is part of DO! Innovation Bootcamp, powered by Stad Gent. The Legal Techathon is powered by De Groote-De Man Advocaten.
