Co-hosted by Legal Innovation Lab Wales and Welsh Government, this conference will bring together those who draft the law with individuals who understand how to organise and use information to make it universally accessible.

If you work in the legal or technology sector then this event is for you!

This event aims to shine a light on issues holding back the legal system, with the goal of creating concept solutions that will improve and accelerate the process of making the law more accessible.

Days 1 – 2 (Conference Days):
Joined by our expert speakers from around the world, we will take a look at the current issues in accessible law and hear from experienced professionals about their tried and tested methods for solutions, along with the opportunity to engage with each presenter through Q&A sessions.
Day 3 – 4 (Hackathon Days):
Looking at current challenges, we will form hack groups in order to focus individual time and expertise on specific issues. Each group will be able to work together to identify target improvement areas and design a solution concept.
Day 5 (Results and Findings):
The final day of this event will allow each team the time to showcase their results with an opportunity to discuss options for future solutions and actions moving forward.

Conference speakers include:
Professor Frederick Schauer - David and Mary Harrison Distinguised Professor at Law, University of Virginia
Dr Megan Ma – CodeX fellow, Stanford Law School, CA
Andrea Galassi - Research Fellow, University of Bologna
