LawTech Hackathon

Science & Technology

Office & Dragons,Β Barclays Eagle Labs,Β Work on BlockchainΒ andΒ Extropy.ioΒ are excited to announce the first ever LawTech Hackathon hosted by the Barclays LawTech Eagle Lab at Notting Hill Gate, London. The hackathon will take place on 29 November - 1 December.

For those new to hackathons, a hackathon is a competition, usually held over the course of a couple days, between small teams of business people and software developers to develop a product, service or platform that addresses a specific challenge and a business pitch for bringing it to market. The developers create an architecture and a prototype of the technology, while the business people make a pitch deck. The event culminates in a pitch competition before a panel of judges, who score the pitches along the challenge criteria and select a winner. Each team's technology is scored by a technical expert before the pitches, and this is factored into their overall score. Throughout the competition, talks and workshops are often held, through which the participants can learn more about the subject of the challenge -- in our case, legal services and lawtech.

Our hackathon will join legal industry professionals and software developers and challenge them to create novel solutions to real-world challenges faced by Barclays bank, using bleeding edge technologies like Blockchain and AI. The winning team(s) will have a chance to pitch in front of a panel of senior decision makers at Barclays bank for support in taking the product forward. Additional prizes from our partners and supporters will be announced in due course.

Space is limited, so request your ticket now! Participant in the hackathon is by selection. A ticket does not guarantee a space to participate. We will notify the final participants separately by email.
