Legal Aid Hackathon 2019
If you are a programmer, law student, graphic designer or just generally interested in developing apps please join us for this year's Legal Aid Hackathon. People will be broken off in teams which will then compete to build the best app. See the latest in access to justice technology as teams present their hackathon projects in 5-minute lightning talks! Chatbots, eviction apps, open-source tools, browser extensions, virtual clinics, legal issue heatmaps, and more!
"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed participating in the Hackathon. As a tech-newbie, I was a little intimidated by the whole thing at first, but by the actual weekend, I was having a great time and learned so much. What I liked best was seeing how creatively technology could be used to respond to unmet legal needs and working with advocates and programmers around the country. I am now a Hackathon fan!"
