On Sunday, April 15, Brooklyn Law School’s Incubator and Policy Clinic (BLIP) hosted its first “Legal Hackathon.” Describing lawyers as “traditionally conservative wallflowers and naysayers,” Jonathan Askin, the founder of the BLIP Clinic, urged the crowd of lawyers, law students, coders, and entrepreneurs to join a “common mission to apply the law to pave the way for technological, civic, social, and cultural progress.”
The Legal Hackathon was conceived as a way to get lawyers and law students to work collaboratively with coders, policymakers, and entrepreneurs to develop creative ways for lawyers to use new technology and for coders to interact with the law. At the BLIP Clinic and elsewhere (even, tellingly, that Saturday at New York School of Law), law students and newly minted lawyers are engaging with technology, and with hacker culture, in exciting ways.
