Extract from Artificial Lawyer’s article “GLH London: Problem Solving, Jimi Hendrix + Freshfields Interview”
The Global Legal Hackathon 2019 successfully concluded on Sunday and it looks like a great time was had by all, around the world, and in London.
The London stage of the event had over 100 hackathon attendees who came along with 17 different ideas to work on. These were reduced to eight main ideas, with teams working across the weekend to build them up as much as they could and then present their applications to a panel of judges.
A team mainly from Freshfields won the London round with an application called Clausana. The Clausana product is a cloud-based (Azure technology) app to help consumers bring Terms & Conditions into the decision-making process, to help people rate and choose between services such as car rental and other digital services (see interview below).
