Dutch Legal Tech is growing. We are expanding our activities with lectures and meetups for students, and the number of community members is rising rapidly. The recent Student Lecture with Daniel Martin Katz resulted in more than 40 new members, pushing the membercount past 830 Legal Innovators.
This growth means more work, of course, and we are happy to expand the team with Claudia Heemskerk. As a Project manager, Claudia will help us to organize interesting and inspiring events. Many of our readers may allready know Claudia; as an Operational Manager at Lexxyn Groep and Event Manager at PLEIT she has years of experience working on the latest developmants in law and ict.
Students are interested in innovation. We want to give this group a voice and a role in the Legal Tech community. This is why whe are announcing a Student-ambassador programme. Student-ambassadors will help us organise Legal Tech events, and spread enthousiasm for legal innovation amongst their peers.
The first Dutch Legal Tech Student-ambassador is Steven de la Vieter. Steven is is doing a private law master at Utrecht University, and has been following developments in tech for years. To him, Legal Tech is “a perfect combination of law and technology”. Steven has been following Dutch Legal Tech for some time, and has contributed to the upcoming Student Meetup in Utrecht.
Would you like to be a Student-ambassador? Come and see us at one of our meetups, or send us an email. We welcome students from all universities and applied universities.
