The Challenge: Develop new legal services that benefit citizens and society using open linked data legislation

The teams will aim at generating ideas for real-life services utilizing Semantic Finlex, a project making Finnish legislative information available in the form of linked open data.

Make Legal Better. Be a part of creating user-friendly legal tech solutions. 

The ideas teams will come up with may address citizens’ rights, consumer issues, bureaucracy, or the legal ecosystem at large, you name it.

As a learning event the high-energy weekend will be unforgettable and the multidisciplinary approach offers the students a great chance to network with future professionals. Law students will gain real-life experience by stepping outside the theoretical legal realm and joining tech-minded people in tackling a concrete problem head-on. IT and design students will get insight on the emerging legal tech scene.

The Grande finale: Prizes and a chance to shine at think corner stage

The reward? Making legal better and more accessible, a chance to present your work to industry influencers and win fame and glory. Oh yes, and prizes. The weekend will end with an epic wrap-up party.
