LegalTech in Leeds – how to get involved

LegalTech in Leeds







With the support of Leeds City Council, Bruntwood SciTech, Barclays, DAC Beachcroft, Leeds Law Society, Rradar, Salesforce, Toca and University of Law, the LegalTech in Leeds initiative aims to foster innovation and accelerate digital transformation in the legal services sector.

LegalTech in Leeds will address industry challenges that are faced by law firms, in-house legal teams, and other organisations. Through an event-based format, the initiative will bring together current and future leaders involved in the legal sector, and will help support tech entrepreneurs seeking to engage with the legal sector. It will also aim to enhance access to legal services for consumers and businesses in the region.

Leeds City Council , Bruntwood SciTech, Barclays, DAC Beachcroft, Leeds Law Society, rradar, Pinsent and Masons,  Salesforce, and University of Law have committed to support this programme, and further sponsorship and support is being sought from the organisations in the legal and digital sectors.
