The Legal Tech Initiative Austria serves as a basis to raise awareness for technology based developments within the legal profession through quarterly Meet-Ups. At the same time we aim to promote innovation in the form of Think Tanks, open to established professionals, start-ups and students alike. In order to extend our contribution to the younger generation, we are keen to take on the challenge of teaching young adults about Legal Tech related topics in workshops hosted at High Schools within Austria, in order to promote legal accessibility. In an attempt to unite all three causes, our homepage will serve as a platform for short articles, podcasts and explanatory videos on the day to day issues Legal Tech confronts us with.
Technology changes the way we operate. It can simplify daily tasks, inside and outside of the office, yet the effect can also be perceived as disruptive. We believe the boundary between risk and opportunity lies within preparation. Access to relevant information is essential in order to gain awareness of the underlying issues, understand the extent of the matter and the ability to take action. In founding this Initiative, we hope to fill an information gap and thus enable the adaption to a new professional era and ultimately help current and forthcoming generations shape the future of the legal industry.
Passion drives us. Determination enables us. Law unites us.
