STHLM – Global Legal Hackathon in Stockholm hosted by Synch

February 22, 2019 - February 24, 2019


Synch is hosting the second Global Legal Hackathon in Stockholm!

The Global Legal Hackathon engages law firms, LegalTech companies, law schools and governments internationally to bring together legal innovators. The goal is to support rapid development of solutions to improve the legal industry worldwide.


This is a real hackathon. It is expected that teams will build working applications, proofs of concept, or prototypes, as well as presentation materials to explain, pitch, and present the application. Participants are encouraged to form teams prior to the event to ensure that teams have the requisite skill sets to actually create a legal tech application and the related pitch and presentation materials but all teams must be willing to accept individual participants on the first day of the event. Teams must arrive at the event having not begun development, though they can have pre-discussed ideas or agreed upon an idea and recruit team members to help develop it over the weekend.

Teams must consist of a mandatory minimum number of three (3) participants with a suggested maximum of six (6). Ten (10) people is the absolute max.

How to pick an idea?

Teams can work on any idea that is of interest to them, provided that ideas are related to the legal industry.

The categories that are required are

  1. Progressing the business of law; or
  2. Facilitating access to justice.
