The legal and technology sectors joined forces for Scotland’s first legal hackathon, Tech4justice in June 2016.

The Law Society of Scotland and Legal Hackers Scotland organised the 48-hour event to generate innovative ideas and technical solutions to address access to justice issues.

A total of eight teams made up of tech and legal professionals took part in the 48 hour event during the weekend 17-19 June. Ideas ranged from creating a mobile app to provide on the spot legal information for young people to voice-recognition systems helping those with small claims cases.
