    Duke Law Tech Lab

    A new kind of accelerator

  • What We Do

    We're on a mission to incubate and support cutting-edge technology that will change the way legal services are delivered in the future


    We are trying to build a community

    We are looking for the next generation of legal and civic technology entrepreneurs who are on their way to changing the way legal and/or government services are delivered.


    We will connect you with valuable partners

    Our 12 week program is built around 1 hour weekly remote conferences with leading legal technology entrepreneurs, innovator law firms, and VCs committed to investing in early-stage software. We will also bring in legal services thought-leaders to hone your pitch and understanding of the legal services ecosystem.


    We are here to support your growth

    The final demo day is our way of highlighting your growth and launching your company to the next stage of its development. Along the way, our connection to Duke University gives us a stable of highly intelligent potential interns as well as connections with leaders in many legal tech-related fields. Our mission is to direct these resources to help you grow.
