Hackathon 193

WHAT IS A HACKATHON?

A Hackathon is an events (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!

WEEK 6: INFORMATION SESSION

The Legal Forecast, who run the national Disrupting Law competition annually, have indicated they will attend in person or via videolink to participate in our information session and give a crashcourse on hackathons, their benefits and why you should participate. If you’re unsure what this is all about, what you’ll need to do or have any questions – this is a must-attend session!

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