HACKATHON DIRECTIONS
MAIN DIRECTION
Access to justice
New ideas for simplifying and expanding opportunities for people who can not make their voices heard.

Creating products that will help you take advantage of your rights, fight against discrimination, or force decision-makers to be brought to justice.

Accessible legal services for people, clear procedures in government bodies, transparent and fair hearings, alternative ways to resolve disputes or prevent justice issues.
ADDITIONAL DIRECTION
Innovations for legal business
Automation of template legal processes, algorithmization of the same type of actions when performing repetitive tasks. Any ideas how to implement it in practice in 48 hours? Then Hakaton is the place where you can test and validate your idea and get a prize for it.

Teams that create products for business innovation will be able to get valuable support and cash prizes, but without the status of Hackathon overall winner.

Reviews and ideas of former members
"The Hackathon, for me, is a unique opportunity to get good feedback from other enthusiasts and to fill my team with cool people.

My idea was to build a platform that performs the process of copyright infringement removal on the Internet (sending a take down notice)"
Dmytro Suprun

"Hackathon is a meeting with like-minded people, an exchange of ideas, a 48-hour marathon to design an MVP.

This is an event that will be the starting point for changes in the legal business.

And I want
to contribute to this"
Yaroslav Ignatenko
Kharkiv
"One of the priorities of the further development of the system of free legal aid is the implementation of the latest information technologies for the realization of tasks.

I am part of a progressive modern team that stands for the protection of human rights and freedoms, promotes the dissemination of legal knowledge, and increases the level of legal consciousness of citizens..."
Iryna Schabelnik

"I'm tired of hearing: 'Why are all the buzz about Europe/America?

What are they doing that we can't? Are we worse?'

And 'I'm tired of riding from one end of the city to the other to transfer documents and listen to permanent deficiencies when everything can be automated.

My project is the design of a primary legal advice."
