CALLING ALL LAW AND INFORMATICS STUDENTS.
ELC and UoE Machine Learning Society are delighted to invite you to our first ever LAW AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HACKATHON at the Edinburgh Outreach Centre.
This event opens with a panel of 3 guest speakers who will be discussing the future of law and how artificial intelligence is changing the legal profession. We will be joined by:
David Halliwell, Director of Knowledge and Innovation Delivery at Pinsent Masons LLP
Akber Datoo, Founder and Managing Partner of D2 Legal Technology
Jimmy Vestbirk, Founder of Legal Geek (the biggest law tech community in the world)
After a short break, students from the University of Edinburgh will have the chance to collaborate to develop a technological solution to address challenges faced by the legal profession with a team of knowledgeable mentors at your disposal. The Hackathon offers an invaluable opportunity for students to exchange ideas on issues that impact their future and benefit from mentorship with experienced leaders in law and technology.
Teams of four will have 3 hours to brainstorm their ideas and develop a strategy before they present their work to be judged on its creativity, applicability and potential impact. Come along for FREE FOOD and AMAZING PRIZES.
Students can sign up for the Panel Discussion alone or the Panel Discussion + Hackathon Workshop (It is mandatory for students who are participating in the Hackathon event to attend the Panel Discussion).
