The Justice Hack 2019 - Victoria

About this Event

*EVENT CANCELLED* Please note that this event has been cancelled.

The Justice Hack has made the very difficult decision to cancel its expansion to Victoria. Despite significant marketing and promotion, we were unable to generate enough interest from participants to produce a quality hackathon.

Thank you to the 11 people who purchased tickets, to our speakers, mentors and judges who planned on supporting us this weekend, and to our partners – Clio, the Law Foundation of BC and the University of Victoria's Access to Justice Centre for Excellence.

We are still exploring ways of engaging communities outside of Vancouver. If you have feedback or questions, please contact hayley@thejusticehack.org.

Original event information:

The Justice Hack, presented by Clio with support from the Law Foundation of BC, is expanding beyond Vancouver with a first event in Victoria!

Come join us as we tackle the barriers that prevent British Columbians from accessing B.C.'s legal and judicial systems.

In groups of around 2 to 5 hackers, lawyers and access-to-justice enthusiasts, teams will develop tech solutions that help small- and medium-sized businesses and startups with everyday legal challenges.

Join a team. Develop a solution. Pitch your idea.

No law degree or coding skills required. Everyone is welcome to come and learn about access to justice (A2J) issues.

  • Background material on A2J issues will be provided
  • Outstanding speakers from tech, law and justice will kick things off Saturday
  • Mentors available throughout the first day
  • Tickets include food, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the event (3x meals Saturday, 2x meals Sunday)

Teams will be expected to present a working prototype of their solution on Sunday afternoon.

This is our first Victoria event, made possible with support from the Law Foundation of BC.

Fast facts:

  • We are not an overnight event
  • Day 1 wraps up around 8:30 p.m. Saturday
  • Day 2 revs up around 8:00 a.m. Sunday
  • This is followed by a casual post-hack networking party
  • We are an all-ages event
  • All experience levels and backgrounds welcome
