What is Disrupting Law?

Disrupting Law 2017 (4 August – 6 August) is a unique 54-hour hackathon / design jam for tertiary students focused on finding new opportunities in the legal industry. The event is an unparalleled opportunity to work closely with lawyers, entrepreneurs, technology professionals, management consultants and others from industry to practice creative problem solving, learn about the business and practice of law, and hone your pitching skills.  

On Friday evening (4 August), all contestants will gather at QUT Gardens Point for an opening celebration and we will allocate student teams to law firms. Students and their law firm mentors will spend 54 hours designing an idea to “disrupt law”.  All teams will pitch to a panel of experienced judges and the public on Sunday night (6 August) for a range of opportunities, awards and prizes. We will provide you with food and drink for the entirety of the weekend.  As there will be alcohol on Friday night and Sunday night you must be at least 18 years of age to participate.  

You must be available for the whole weekend, and while we will try to cater for your requests to join a team with friends,  part of the fun (and the challenge) is that we randomise teams so you meet new and interesting people with perspectives from other faculties. All tertiary students are welcome to participate, no matter their university or degree.  As you must hit the ground running, we particularly encourage those with law and technology backgrounds to apply (but an interest and a measure of enthusiasm will suffice!).

Our amazing event sponsors include Janders Dean, Neota Logic, the Centre for Legal Innovation, Thomson Reuters, Suncorp Bank and QUT Law School.  

Tickets are limited so please get in fast!
