The Thomson Reuters/CodeX 2015 Legal Tech Open Innovation Challenge starts now
Are you a forward-thinking technologist or entrepreneur who is developing next-generation technology solutions that can advance the legal system? If so, then you need to join the 2015 Legal Tech Open Innovation Challenge.
Sponsored by Thomson Reuters and CodeX – The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics – and hosted by InnoCentive, this competition is an open call for legal professionals, programmers, entrepreneurs, data scientists and any other interested parties to develop new applications that improve the efficiency of the legal system by providing high-value analytics. The contest is now open and runs through Sept. 15, 2015.
Participants will gain access to several years of federal court dockets content from WestlawNext, which can be combined with outside data sources to develop applications that can create or identify useful metrics, trends, patterns, projections and predictions to support the practice and business of law.
Awards, including a $20,000 top prize, will be presented in November. Entries will be judged on their ability to innovate big-data analytics to address practical or professional needs of the legal marketplace. Submissions will be evaluated for novel combination, integration and application of data analysis.
