Firstly we would like to thank everyone who was involved with Future Lawyer Week (FLW) USA 2.0 in March 2022 after a brief hiatus due to the global pandemic. The show was a massive success
FLW USA 2.0 was a 2-day interactive legal innovation event hosted in March 2022. Day 1 of the event was made up of a full day hackathon powered by Josef with Day 2 being a full day conference and drinks reception. Watch our video, flick through some of our pictures and read the testimonials from the 2022 event.
Take a look at our video from the 2 day event!
Plenty more video footage, testimonials and imagery will be available on the FLW USA website soon. You can also pre register your interest in the event for 2023 in multiple capacities including: Sponsoring, speaking, attending and becoming a media partner.
Day 1 – Hackathon
The 2022 hackathon was to create your own legal bots using Josef’s no-code automation tool. Maybe create an automation for that document you always have to manually prepare. Or think bigger? Create a legal advice bot that could help thousands, maybe even millions.
The No-Code Big Bang was a full-day hackathon which professionals from leading legal teams across the US and further afield split into five groups to build a digital legal tool in less than a day.
Armed with access to Josef, and a brief 45-minute training session, all five teams set about producing some incredible bots to respond to their chosen problem statements. No tech savviness needed – just an open mind, a dash of creativity, and loads of collaboration.
We would like to say Well done to all the no-code hackers from Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, Columbia University in the City of New York, Mayer Brown, Akerman LLP, Deloitte, Moneypenny, JD Group, Spice Box, Paroly Law, ODDS Legal and Clifford Chance Americas!
Day 2 – Conference and Drink Reception
The conference was made up of five panel sessions, two stand alone presentations and a keynote all delivered by legal tech and innovation professionals from around the world. A copy of the 2022 agenda is available to download using the button below:
