  • The 2019 Program

    Duke Law Tech Lab offers remote resources to early-stage legal tech companies based in the United States.

    In 2019, we provided these resources through two methods:

    12 Selected Companies

    Online Community

    All selected participants joined an online community of legal tech entrepreneurs to access content, resources, and discussion forums.

     

    Content included topics such as: the legal tech ecosystem, customer acquisition, product design and validation, mentorship and advisory boards, strategy, sustainable growth, and leadership and management.

    5 Companies Increasing Access to Legal Services

    Online Community + Additional Support

    For five companies emphasizing the creation of new markets to expand access to legal services, we provided bespoke support in addition to the above online community.

     

    These selected companies working to increase access to legal services were given a $1,000 micro grant and access to weekly live remote sessions with peers and guest speakers. They received additional tailored content, connections to mentors based on each team's highly individualized needs, and the opportunity to compete at The Duke Law Tech Lab Demo Day on Friday, September 20, 2019 for monetary prizes.
