What is the Legal Apps Hackathon
The Legal Apps Hackathon was the first of its kind event in Ireland. Using innovative AI technology, four teams of third level students faced tough competition in a 24-hour marathon challenge.
The competition was open to third level students from all educational backgrounds, with finalists challenged to design and build an automated app that gives tailored guidance to users on a complex legal question. To achieve this, McCann FitzGerald teamed up with award winning expert system development platform Neota Logic.
