- ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS -
Innov8 Legal is a platform aimed to foster the development of a diverse and vibrant community, where legal innovators can come together to share thoughts, experiences and best practices and collaborate on creating innovative solutions to legal challenges through leveraging technology and innovative methods for legal service delivery ultimately to change the legal industry for the better.
‘Change has never happened this fast before and will never happen this slowly again’ – this powerful message is even more relevant today when organizations must react quickly, as the pace of change has only sped up and continues to accelerate and innovation has become essential for business continuity.
The global legal industry is undergoing a fundamental transformation. Innovation is gradually starting to penetrate the legal market, and legaltech is a major part of this transformation. Much like any profession or industry, lawyers, law firms, and the legal profession as a whole must evolve to meet their client’s needs. After all, as John F. Kennedy stated, “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future."
With Innov8 Legal’s core values as Innovation, Creativity & Disruption, and Technology Orientation, hosting Innov8 Legal Hackathon – the Israeli chapter of the Global Legal Hackathon 2022 – is a testament to our continued commitment to bringing innovation into the legal industry.
