Legal Hacking Is a Movement

Legal hacking is a movement.

On Twitter, the hashtags for legal hacking news are #legalhack and #legalhacks.

Several legal hacking events — i.e., meetings at which developers engage in coding or other development activities leading to the creation of new legal technologies, or enter their new legal technologies in competitions — are scheduled for the coming weeks [if you know of others, please mention them in the comments]:
