Law for Good is the not-for-profit arm of Legal Geek. We focus on four main areas of work:
Our work has been recognised by:
We organise LawTech hackathons for teams of lawyers, coders and UX specialists to design tech solutions for specific problems faced by legal charities.
After the success of the first ever Law for Good hackathon in March 2016 in which the winning team – Freshfields – designed a virtual receptionist for Hackney Community Law Centre, we held our second hackathon alongside the Legal Geek Conference in October 2016.
For our third, and so far the biggest, hackathon we have teamed up with Richard Susskind, the Society for Computers and Law, and The Judiciary to launch an Online Courts Hackathon. 30 teams (who came from as far as Australia) competed in July 2017 to build new concepts for the online courts system. The winning team made up from members of Wavelength Law and the Law Society of England and Wales designed and built “CoLin”, a digital pathfinder made to help an ordinary person identify, understand and resolve typical legal issues.
Make sure to join the Legal Geek community to keep up-to-date with all our future hackathons.
We help charities understand best use of tech for their organisation and access free hardware and software.
