LegalTech Open 21′

The Swiss Student LegalTech Competition

Join the very first Swiss LegalTech Open!

Fall 2021 will see adventurous law students from all over Switzerland come together in teams to code their own LegalTech: a platform that automates the process of creating “Associations” fully recognized under Swiss law.


New to coding, not an expert in legal design, unfamiliar with the law governing Swiss Associations? 

No worries, we’ve got you covered: four top-notch masterclasses and dedicated coaches await you. It’s THE occasion to up your game.
