Law for Everyone Contestants Announced

We’re excited to announce the contestants for the Law for Everyone challenge! These teams are off to the races building their legal applications. They now have until August 7th to build out their projects before the judging begins.

The Law for Everyone challenge (see evaluation criteria here) is a competition for the Bucerius Legal Tech Essentials and the Passport to Practice programs, where teams around the world are building legal tech applications on Documate to solve a legal problem – whether it be legal aid, consumer, or corporate-focused. The winner will receive a $1,000 prize.

4CORIMost criminal records in Massachusetts have four outcomes: they cannot be sealed, they can be sealed through 100A process, they can be sealed through 100C process, they cannot be sealed yet (longer time frame needed). However, there is no method for people to quickly and conveniently determine which of the four outcomes applies to their situation. Hence, 4CORI.
