How it works
Each year, the Lander & Rogers LawTech Hub invites individuals, teams or businesses who have bright ideas for the future of law to participate in a highly-focused six-month program that provides founders with the tools, frameworks and support to achieve success, while avoiding common traps. Learn more about the programs below.
Unlike other programs, founders retain all IP to their business or solution, and the LawTech Hub does not take an equity stake in the business. In addition, programs offer support including access to mentors and other legaltech entrepreneurs and residents; an individually curated business skills program and access to our partner program, offering connections to leading industry specialists.
For 2024, we're running an AI-focused program. Read more below.
