Legal Hacking, Technology, and Innovation Groups

There now appear to be more than twenty legal hacking, technology, or innovation groups meeting regularly and hosting legal hacking, legal startup showcases, or similar events:

In addition, there are now many Ethereum meetups all over the world.

Dan Lear says that he and Janelle Milo have organized the group in Seattle, Washington.

These groups appear to be informal, civil-society associations that allow developers, designers, legal professionals, researchers, students, and others to meet to develop new legal technologies, learn about new legal startups, and create law reform proposals.

These groups’ events and online conversations often have the hashtag #LegalHack

Most of these groups seem to use the Meetup platform to share information and organize events.

We’re trying to keep a list of upcoming legal hacking events sponsored by these groups (and others).

If you know of other regularly meeting legal hacking, technology, or innovation groups, please tell us about them in the comments to this post.

    Great list. You guys are spoiled for choice! Any insights on groups outside the US? Have been looking for groups like this down here in New Zealand and Australia. Without success.

  5. In September 2013 I asked colleagues in Australia and New Zealand if they knew of legal hacking groups there, and they said they did not.
