The Music City Legal Hackathon is returning!

Music City Legal Hackathon 2.0 brings together lawyers, legal services providers, coders, designers, educators, government officials, and sponsors for a day-long hackathon to create real solutions to real access-to-justice problems in Tennessee. The 2018 hackathon's theme — REIMAGINING THE LAW: legal + design + tech — says it all: hackathon teams will work to meet challenges and solve problems submitted by pro bono, "low bono" and other legal services providers from across the state of Tennessee, to reimagine the delivery of legal services and access to civil justice. Our goal is to connect technological solutions to real access to civil legal services needs and create practical solutions. Below is the hackathon schedule. We hope you'll join us!

The Hackathon and Unconference is a joint venture of Music City Legal Hackers (an initiative of Vanderbilt Law's Program on Law and Innovation) and Code for Nashville.
