Ardent Legal (Advocates & Solicitors) in collaboration with Spaklin are proud to host India Legal Hackathon for the second time, which will be held in National Capital Region of India during February 21 and 22, 2019 as part of the Global Legal Hackathon , the largest legal hackathon in history that will take place in cities and countries all over the world, bringing the legal industry together with tech and innovation, world-wide, with one purpose: rapid development of solutions for improving the legal industry world-wide. The inaugural Global Legal Hackathon launched in February 2018 and has since grown to become one of the largest legal innovation initiatives around the world. In 2018, organizations from over 40 cities in 22 countries across 6 continents hosted the first Global Legal Hackathon. There were over 5,000 participants. Major law firms and software companies were involved. Fourteen teams made it to #GLH2018 Finals in New York City, where four teams won major prizes and were globally acknowledged for their innovative solutions for the legal industry.
The worldwide hackathon kicked off with India?s 1st Legal Hackathon in Tel the National Capital Region of India, hosted by Ardent Legal (Advocates & Solicitors), in collaboration with Spaklin, and has signaled a new chapter in India?s legal tech sector. As the country?s first legal hackathon, it has been featured on the main legal and financial news sources in India. We were also excited about the fact that Israel’s reputation as a world-renowned hub of innovation attracted much interest in the local hackathon on a global level. Nearly 100 people participated in the event, including contestants and mentors, who worked to create solutions to problems in the local legal industry. They had support from local technology vendors who provided technological platforms for the participants to build and develop their prototypes.
Two groups of lawyers and technologists presented their innovative solutions at the hackathon, with the aim to overcome legal challenges both in the private and public sectors. We are proud of the movement that was started with India?s 1st Legal Hackathon, and hope that the developed solutions will continue their paths toward implementing successful legal innovations in India and beyond.
