These events are created by individuals from organisations with interests in LegalTech, they are not formally affiliated with any organisation and are intended as a relaxed space to develop the LegalTech community in and around Manchester.
This is the first time we are hosting a Meetup virtually but to follow the usual style which encourages mingling and networking, we are including a virtual drinks session so encourage you to bring a beer/pot of tea/tipple of choice and maybe pour a packet of crisps into a bowl to really recreate the in-person event experience!
How has the legal sector adapted? What technology are we now using? What does this mean for Legal Tech?
