We are Harvard Law School’s student organization for examining the
way technology impacts the law. Some of our current business:

 

Fall, 2018, L-i-Lab Collaboration: Every Friday, TechSoc is teaming up with the Library Innovation Lab to co-sponsor a monthly tech chat series called Tech Gumbo — which will give programmers and entrepreneurs interested in building technology products with legal applications a chance to discuss what they are working on and throw around ideas for future projects/ collaborations.  Adam Zeigler and Jack Cushman of L-i-Lab fame will be running their end of it and Rocky and myself will be the TechSoc point people. Shoot me an email if you’d like to be added to the Tech Gumbo listserv!

November 9th, 2018, HALB Panel: We’re organizing a lunch panel panel from 12-1 on the final day of a five day HALB Legal Technology Conference which is co-hosted by the Journal of Law and Technology, HALB, ourselves and the Library Innovation Lab.  Panelists include leaders from the legal tech industry in Boston and beyond.

November 10th, 2018, Justice Hackathon: We’re teaming up with Developing Justice for a hackathon this November!  See https://www.justicehackathon.org/ for more details and to sign up!
