Applications for the LawTech Hub 2021 Program are now open

LawTech Hub brings lawyers and entrepreneurs together to design and build transformative legal technology. We are inviting teams who have bright ideas for the future of law to participate in a highly focused program that provides founders with the tools, frameworks and support to achieve success.

Unlike other programs, founders retain all IP to their business or solution, and LawTech Hub does not own an equity stake in the business.

This year, we’re running three programs:

 

P R O G R A M 1: MEET THE BRIEF

Contract negotiation

The review is typically a four-stage process, managed via email, with the contract stored in a central SharePoint folder and updated using the Track Changes feature.

  • Improve consistency and reduce queries by seamlessly guiding reviewers through the contract review process
  • Assist reviewers with customised wording within the contract

In-house legal triage

Legal teams within large organisations receive a significant volume of queries from internal business units, such as marketing departments. The LawTech Hub is seeking applications from innovative tech companies to develop a solution to reduce the number of queries by developing an automated response system.
