With the goal of promoting positive uses of technology in the legal realm, ONTIER is partnering with the Law Schools Global League to launch the first ever Global Legal Tech Venture Days, a cutting-edge, highly competitive program designed to support the identification and development of start-ups that are developing tech-based solutions to help actors in the legal arena. The first Legaltech Venture Day will be held in Singapore on April 5th, 2018.
In the coming months, around 10 start-ups will be identify based on their originality, financial viability, and ability to have a positive impact on major challenges faced by legal systems, including improving the generation, application and enforcement of laws and regulations, facilitating access to legal systems of the underserved, and in general improving substantially the normal operation of legal systems, with a particular focus on the common good.
Finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their projects to a selected audience in three regions in which law schools of the LSGL are based: Singapore, Mexico and United States.
In addition, the winners of the regional competitions shall be invited to participate at the final Venture Day in Madrid, which will take place at IE Law School in the month of July of 2018. They shall present their projects to a mix of investors, government officials, business pioneers, and representatives of key industries. They will also have the chance to meet world-leading experts in their field and receive advice, insights and best practices.
The value proposition for start-ups is the possibility to get plugged into real networking and investment opportunities that can push their projects to the next level. They will benefit from the global network of the LSGL and from that of each member law school.
