News and events

Initiative members are regularly involved in events and work at the forefront of law and technology.

Since 2018 the Mcr LawTech community has been growing. In July 2022 The University of Manchester and partners hosted the UK's first major conference on Legal Technology and Legal Innovation outside of London; bringing together the broad community of legal innovators in and around the North West. The event was held at Circle Square thanks to sponsors Bruntwood. You can see the conference programme HERE and watch highlights from the conference in this short video:

You can find the Law and Technology Conference brochure here.

We plan for this to become an annual event and a key feature in the legal sector calendar.
