About the Award
Celebrating Female Contributions to Legal Tech
Who are the women of legal tech?
Law is still viewed by some as a traditionally male profession. Women, technology companies and progressive law firms are eroding that view, but as female legal tech professionals make a great impact, their contributions are not always visible. The award aims to:
- Demonstrate to decision makers, conferences and publications as well as education and entrepreneurship benefits of the growing visibility of diversity in action.
- Promote work in innovation and technology to women and particularly students interested in the field. They can look to our nominees and winners as evidence that they can make an impact in the profession.
- Help women celebrate their contributions in legal tech, make their voice stronger and proclaim the impact of their innovation and thought leadership.
The purpose of the award is to celebrate the success of women and to showcase the important contributions they make to the legal tech scene. We also aim to build a sense of community based around that success.
In doing so, we hope to join with them and foster further innovation and the advancement of legal tech, driving the evolution of the European legal world in general.
The #EWOLT2020 voting process explained
The final award will be based on the decision of the jury, comprising 15 experts from the international legal tech industry (names to be announced). They will make their decisions based on different criteria for each category. One of the criteria will be public voting.
The number of awards per category varies, with between 5 to 10 unranked awards in each, dependent on the number of nominees.
The public voting is now live for the #EWOLT2020 awards.
Past award: WOLT’18 Edition (GER, AUT, SWISS)
“The “Woman of Legal Tech” award brings one thing above all: visibility. The chance to become even more visible with one’s own topics is an enormous added value of the award in addition to the networking with the many exciting women. I am very pleased that there will be a new edition in an extended version!”Christina-Maria Leeb
