This past weekend Seattle hosted its first ever Startup Weekend devoted entirely to innovations in legal technology. Lawyers and law students teamed up with developers, designers, business gurus, and other creative geniuses to bring change to the historically hard-to-shake legal industry. You can review the events of the weekend on Twitter with a search for #swlegal and by checking out the official event handle, @seattlelegalsw.
Below is a brief description of each winning team with links to their Twitter accounts and websites.
Third Place was a tie between CaseBooker and Commontary.
Commontary seeks to bridge the gap between the Internet and access to justice, acting as an online marketplace for efficient legal input where individuals and startups can get lawyer input on important legal documents.
The First Place winner was Restaurant Crisis, a web-based crisis management application for food service that actively leads an onsite manager through real-time accident management.
Congratulations to our winners!
