I studied Computing in Imperial College London and I will be starting the GDL at BPP in October 2017. Watch this space as I will be sharing my take on legal tech and tips on juggling part-time jobs, vacation scheme applications and studying full-time.
I recently took part in the Global Legal Hackathon – the world’s largest hackathon dedicated to legal technology and innovation. This year’s theme was increasing access to justice, so participants were expected to brainstorm and create prototypes of tools that would help the public better understand legal jargon and receive legal advice.
