In conjunction with the fabulous team running the Global Legal Hackathon, we wanted to share the following updates following the first round (which was a huge success).

  • Final number of participating cities: 40
  • Final number of participating countries: 22
  • Estimated final number of participants world-wide: 5, 000 +
  • Estimated number of teams: close to 1,000

Looking ahead to round 2: it is an opportunity for first round winners to continue working on their projects, improving the technology, running market research, seeking funding, and ensuring they’re working toward the development of real solutions.

As always you can keep track of Global Legal Hackathon on Twitter – we will be covering the event throughout on our handle: @HIPCOUNSEL, which you can find here.
