Parsons Behle & Latimer is pleased to announce that it is a co-sponsor of the BYU Law site of the first-ever Global Legal Hackathon. Organized by IBM Watson and Integra Ledger, this event will be the largest legal hackathon in history, incorporating more than 39 cities on six continents, over 10,000 participants and 54 hours of hacking. The winning teams throughout the world will be judged by an international panel, culminating in an awards banquet in New York City.

During the hackathon, teams, which consist of three or more professionals or students, will collaborate to create a working prototype of a new technology associated with the law. All types of technologies will be featured, including blockchain, and their applications can be for private or public benefit. The teams will start their work on Thursday, February 22, with final pitching to the judging panel of local experts taking place the evening of Saturday, February 24.
