Legal Appathon at ABA TECHSHOW 2015

Whether you’re a user of legal tools or creator of them, you’ll want to follow the first Legal Appathon—a joint project of the MIT Media Lab and ABA TECHSHOW.

The Legal Appathon is similar to your traditional hackathon, but the teams are remotely distributed. Each team has been working on their project and they’ll be showcased online and at ABA TECHSHOW on Wednesday, April 15th. Watch the video above for more detail, or check out this sampling of projects currently underway:

  • LawSTAR
    An interactive online resource for students, by students. This project brings together technology, efficiency, and accessibility to help students exchange information and ideas online.
  • 3D Printing Code of Conduct
    This team is working to develop a Code of Conduct for users in the 3D printing community to help address issues including intellectual property, tort law, criminal law, and privacy.
  • Take Down My Photo
    This platform would allow victims of revenge porn to use a simple online system to send DMCA take down requests.
  • FLIC (Film Legal Information Center)
    This app is designed to organize all of the business and legal needs of indie film artists and game designers into a single online environment.

Much more to come! Keep an eye on Law Technology Today for updates, or if you’re joining us for ABA TECHSHOW, stop by our live Appathon event on Wednesday, April 15th from 7:30-9:00pm.
