Legal Hackers is a global movement of lawyers, policymakers, technologists, and academics who explore and develop creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology. Through local meetups, hackathons, and workshops, Legal Hackers spot issues and opportunities where technology can improve and inform the practice of law and where law, legal practice, and policy can adapt to rapidly changing technology. The Wake Forest University chapter aims to support the local community of innovative thinkers and entrepreneurs by bringing this movement to Wake Forest Law and encouraging the development of the next generation of legal scholars.
The moniker “Legal Hackers” finds its origins in New York City. But ever since the New York Meetup’s founding in August of 2012, there has been an explosion of Legal Hackers groups around the U.S. and, increasingly, around the world. Take a look at the Chapters page to see if there’s a group near you. These groups meet to discuss important issues, hold hackathons, network, and collaborate. Our community is a thriving global support network with room to grow. Join us! We are explorers. We are doers. We are Legal Hackers.
