Welcome Back

Legal Tech Essentials 2022

Dan Katz and Dirk Hartung, 2019
…live from Bucerius Studios!

When we started Legal Tech Essentials in 2020, little did we dream that over 8,500 people would take part in our program. In 2021, we built on our experiences from the first iteration.

This year, we are back with a new program that brings exciting content to even more timezones:

For the first time, Legal Tech Essentials will be a joint effort this year between Bucerius Law School’s Center for Legal Technology and Data Science and Singapore Management University’s Centre for Computational Law at the Yong Pung How School of Law.

From mid-November to early December, we are going to host inspirational presentations from some of the world's leading Legal Technology and Operations experts Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. Hamburg Time / 8:30 p.m. Singapore Time / 7:30 a.m. Eastern Time. We promise 60–90 minutes of insights and Q&A.

Be sure to sign up in time to receive updates on topics, lecturers and more.
