IE Law School will be attending the Legal Geek Conference in London
At IE Law School we are excited and very much looking forward to being part of this vibrant and global legaltech startup community that is dedicated to changing the legal profession by inspiring, connecting and educating.
Compared to ‘law’s Woodstock’ by Mark Cohen, a regular contributor of Forbes and CEO of Legal Mosaic, the Legal Geek Conference which will be celebrated in London on October 17th awakes a shared feeling of community that transcends geography, generation, gender, ethnicity, training and financial status. “Lawyers, technologists, financiers, entrepreneurs, students, academics, and pundits mingled freely and animatedly, joined by a sense that the legal industry is changing and that this is their time”, says Mark Cohen in his article.
As well as Legal Geek, IE Law School shares the same vision and goal of connecting and boosting the legaltech startup ecosystem around the world and providing resources to help them thrive. Our Global Legaltech Venture Days celebrated earlier this year, connected more than 40 legal tech startups in Singapore, Chicago and México. Next year we will be launching a new edition of our Global Legaltech Venture Days and will be hosting startup competitions in different cities to meet inspiring legaltech entrepreneurs that are shaking and shaping the legal industry from the ground up (stay tuned!).
The legaltech revolution is now and only those who may adapt themselves to changes will lead the way.
