WHAT IS A HACKATHON?

A Hackathon is an event (or in this case series of events) where people come together in teams to solve problems through technology and innovation. Our hackathon has a legal education focus, so you have the ability to find and fix problems or increase efficiency in education processes. Are you creative? Driven? Just looking for some fun? This is the event for you!

This competition is open to both law and non-law students.
