Duke Law’s Start-Up Ventures Clinic will host the EvolveLaw Showcase, a forum for legal technology innovators, on Sept. 29 at Duke Law School. Event attendees will hear presentations on the latest legal technology and five-minute Darwin Talks about the new ideas most likely to change the legal profession. The event is part of Duke’s Entrepreneurship Week, which highlights entrepreneurship around campus as well the university’s connections within North Carolina’s Research Triangle, a hotbed for entrepreneurial activity and innovative thinking.
Start-Up Ventures Clinic Director Jeff Ward said that working with the legal tech entrepreneurship organization is a natural fit for his clinic and Duke Law School. “Working with EvolveLaw makes perfect sense for us, as it merges two of Duke Law’s existing strengths: thought leadership on the future of legal technology and a creative and a vigorous entrepreneurial community,” said Ward, a clinical professor law.
Students can attend the event for free and will have the opportunity to network with local legal technology innovators, browse demo tables, and hear presentations. New tools for marketing and social media, secure videoconferencing, and trademark researching will be among the topics covered.
