Loyens & Loeff bij YES!Delft Students Hackathon

Donderdag 28 februari en vrijdag 1 maart was Loyens & Loeff aanwezig bij de YES!Delft Students Hackathon. In het kader van het 10-jarige lustrum van de studievereniging YES!Delft Students organiseerde zij een Hackathon om studenten interactief kennis te laten maken met ondernemerschap, technische innovaties en uiteraard de vereniging zelf.

Loyens & Loeff was bij de Hackathon aanwezig met een casus over lawtech en gaf hierbij met een groep van 11 collega’s ondersteuning. Als juridisch dienstverlener willen wij ons namelijk blijven ontwikkelen op het gebied van innovatie. Tegelijkertijd willen we graag studenten kennis laten maken met innovatie binnen de juridische markt en onze kennis overdragen. Tijdens de Hackathon hebben 30 studenten zich 24 uur lang ingezet voor de lawtech challenge. Het winnende team heeft een geldprijs gewonnen en wordt binnenkort uitgenodigd op ons kantoor om hun presentatie nogmaals te geven aan het innovatieteam en geïnteresseerden. Daarna wordt bekeken of we hun oplossing daadwerkelijk kunnen implementeren.
