Legal Innovation Hackathon

To drive legal innovation, support entrepreneurship and benefit the community at large.

The UALR Bowen Legal Innovation Hackathon is the first legal-themed hackathon in the state of Arkansas.

The legal profession and the tools used by the profession to serve businesses and individuals must evolve to meet the ever-changing demands of these progressive and, in many ways, underserved markets. “Legal hacking” is the development of creative solutions to problems in the legal system by developing new intersections between Law and technology. We need to raise awareness of the problems faced by our communities and develop innovative, effective solutions to those problems.

Attending the hackathon will be legal-tech industry sponsors, law students, attorneys, and law professors, but we need YOUR development skills, creative ideas, and anyone interested in technology, the law, and improving the delivery of legal services through innovation. Register now.

The UALR Bowen Hackathon has been developed in conjunction with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review’s 2016 Symposium “Legal Hacking: Technology and Innovation in the Legal Profession.”
