How it works
Each year, LawTech Hub invites individuals, teams or businesses who have bright ideas for the future of law to participate in a highly focused program that provides founders with the tools, frameworks and support to achieve success, while avoiding common traps. Learn more about the programs below.
Unlike other programs, founders retain all IP to their business or solution, and LawTech Hub does not own an equity stake in the business. In addition, programs offer support including physical office space for collaboration, work and meetings; access to mentors and other legaltech entrepreneurs and residents; office facilities including desk space, high-speed internet and more.
This year, we're running three programs. Read more below.
