Hackathons are events where people come together to collaboratively build and launch technology based solutions aimed at solving a particular problem. The Houston Global Legal Hackathon is about finding solutions for the legal industry. Teams will compete against one another, to build a solution that fits one of our two requirements; progressing the business of law or facilitating access to justice. This is a real hackathon. It is expected that teams will build working applications, proofs of concept, or prototypes, as well as presentation materials to explain, pitch, and present the application.
