Global Legaltech Venture Days Connecting and fostering the entrepreneurial ecosystem to discover the startups disrupting the legal sector

Legaltech Venture Days

Identifying and supporting legal tech startups in the expanding industry

In an increasingly globalized and tech-oriented world, it’s no surprise that law is undergoing a dramatic reinvention. Legal Tech is rapidly expanding, and new players and startups are bursting onto the scene in extraordinary ways, providing powerful solutions and innovative opportunities for law firms, corporations and both private and public organizations.

With this in mind, IE Law School, LexisNexis and the Law Schools Global League have teamed up to launch the Global Legal Tech Venture Day. We want to give back to the blossoming Legal Tech industry and help these promising young companies realize their potential to become harbingers of change and innovation within the industry.

This cutting-edge competition has been designed to seek out and support startups that have a positive and forward-thinking outlook on the major challenges faced by legal operators and legal systems today. By providing solutions and ideas to help ease these challenges, such startups are not only furthering the cause of justice, but also transforming the sector.

About this year’s virtual edition

A new, global and virtual competition and format is underway to discover and help legal tech start-ups advance their business projects, while fostering innovation for the betterment of legal systems and for the advancement of the Rule of Law.

In the coming months, and until May 30, we will select five global startups based on the criteria we think is needed to drive this current revolution: originality, financial viability and the ability to take on major challenges faced by the legal sector today.

Finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their projects to an exclusive virtual audience of industry experts, comprised of investors, VC’s and mentors—all pioneers in the legal and business worlds respectively. The winner startup will be mentored by the LexisNexis VP of Strategy and M&A CEMEA for six months and will meet a selection of clients to pitch their product or service.

If you are a startup dedicated to developing ingenious and sustainable solutions to improve day-to-day legal practices—public or private—then this is the competition for you.
