NY Legal Hackers Meetup: Startups Disrupting the Legal Industry
Thursday, August 29th from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
While the digital age has brought greater efficiency to almost every industry, the staid legal sector seems stubbornly stuck in the past. A group of innovators is changing things by using technology to make legal services more affordable and user-friendly. Their approaches include creating online services where users can quickly find legal help and using software to automate routine legal work.
This event will feature short demos from consumer-facing legal technology companies followed by a panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities associated with disrupting the legal industry. We'll discuss why the legal industry failed to innovate, where the biggest opportunities to disrupt are, if lawyers should be afraid, and much more.
