A law student competition to invent new legal technologies — called the Georgetown Law Iron Tech Lawyer Competition — will be held 18 April 2012 at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC, USA, according to an 11 April 2012 press release.
Here is a description of the event:
During the Spring 2012 semester, Georgetown Law Professor Tanina Rostain and Adjunct Professor Roger Skalbeck are offering a new experiential seminar on “Technology, Innovation and Legal Practice.” Students in the seminar have heard from a range of experts on topics relating to law practice innovation enabled by technology. By using the tools introduced in the seminar or platforms they created independently, student teams have been working to develop applications that solve a legal practice problem, either by increasing access to the legal system or by making legal practice more efficient. The students will be presenting their final projects in Georgetown Law’s first “Iron Tech Lawyer Competition.” A panel of judges, made up of two Georgetown Law faculty members and two outside experts, will decide which is the best platform, program or expert system designed in the class.
Ed Walters of Fastcase will be one of the judges.
