The Swedish event will be hosted by Synch, and the participants will be judged by among others Fredrik Svärd of Legaltech.se.
Organisers Aileen Schultz and David A. Fisher expect around 10 000 participants from six continents, and 20 or more actual legal tech companies being launched after the event. There is no entry fee, and you do not need to have a team or an idea to participate. Local winners will go on to compete in New York in April.
David Fisher is the founder and CEO of Integra Ledger, a permissioned blockchain for the legal industry, Aileen Schultz is the director of network intelligence. Together they are co-hosting the Global Legal Hackathon.
