With the generous support of the Marion Ewing Kauffman Foundation, we are proud to announce the Legal Technology Laboratory (LTL) Prototyping Jam that will be taking place on November 12.

The one-day event will feature a range of legal tech projects and prototyping activities, all presented by a range of inspiring people. A key objective will also be to show how these projects have a direct impact on eliminating barriers to entrepreneurship. These projects have emerged from a number of key activities and events including:

  • The LTL event at MIT Media Labs in May 2016,
  • The UMKC Law, Technology and Public Policy Course from the Fall of 2016,
  • National Day of Civic Hacking,

The day will see a wide range of people including high-profile experts in law and technology from academic, not-for-profit and for-profit organizations. This will include some key collaborators (including the KC Code for America Brigade) and a range of entrepreneurs and start-ups from Kansas City.

Attendance is free but places are limited, so if you are interested in participating in this event, please register by clicking on the link below.
