Frequently asked questions about the LegalTech Vacation Scheme (LTVS).
How much is the event?
Attending the online portion of the event is completely free!
Do I need any knowledge in LegalTech, legal innovation, or legal design to join?
Not at all. The aim of the LegalTech Vacation Scheme is to teach you about these topics and to gain practical skills in these areas.
What is the time commitment of The LegalTech Vacation Scheme and LegalTech48?
The time commitment of the scheme depends on whether you are attending only the Skills Workshops or the Skill Workshops + the LegalTech48.
The LegalTech Vacation Scheme will take place for around 3 hours in the middle of the day at the end of June 2023. Attending only the workshops is perfect if you are looking to learn more about LegalTech and legal innovation, but do not wish to commit to the 48-hour challenge.
The LegalTech48 begin the first in July 2023. We recommend being available for the 3rd and 4th July 2023 to commit to the challenge!
What is the LegalTech48? Is it a hackathon?
Unlike a conventional hackathon, our 48-hour challenge does not require any coding or the creation of a fully working product.
Participants will have the chance to put into practice skills from the Skills Workshops, which will focus on identifying problems, developing solutions, adopting solutions, and adopting a growth mindset.
However, like a hackathon we do expect participants to spend the two-day period working on their solution, and then pitch it at the end of the event.
I want to attend LegalTech48 but not the Skills Workshops, can I?
We're expecting participants to put the skills they've learnt during the Skills Workshops into practice for LegalTech48. For that reason, if you want to attend LegalTech48 you must register and attend the Skills Workshops as well.
Please note that spots for LegalTech48 are limited, and will be given away via raffle.
When do I found out if I got a spot on LegalTech48?
We confirm timings when we launch the LegalTech48 raffle around a month out from the LTVS.
Do I need to be a student to attend?
The LTVS and LegalTech48 are aimed at anyone and everyone interested in learning more about LegalTech and Innovation - including students, lawyers, paralegals, trainees, legal professionals, LegalTech professionals, and non-law students!
I can’t make it!
