European Women of Legal Tech 2020
Awarding female impact on the digital
transformation of the law #EWOLT2020
Information technology is the platform on which modern business is based. Legal tech defines the sector that changes and shapes how the legal world functions and does business.
In action, legal tech provides a digital layer of services to improve access to knowledge and productivity across the legal profession, from the teaching of law up to the courts and beyond into wider society.
Women in legal tech
In the era of gender equality, women make as much of a contribution as men, but their impact is not always visible. We wish to celebrate female* contributions to legal tech, and make their voices and actions more visible.
The first Women of Legal Tech awards were held in 2018, supporting innovation across Germany, Austria and Switzerland region. They recognized 26 women for their inspiring contributions across the sector.
With the European Women of Legal Tech awards for 2020, we invite nominations from a wider audience, recognising achievement from across the continent, and aiming to increase the award’s impact in making female-driven contributions more visible.
*By women, we include all female gender identities, including trans, intersex and cis, non-binary and gender non-conforming people, as well as those who identify as women.
