The Global Legal Hackathon 2019 successfully concluded on Sunday and it looks like a great time was had by all, around the world, and in London.
The London stage of the event had over 100 hackathon attendees who came along with 17 different ideas to work on. These were reduced to eight main ideas, with teams working across the weekend to build them up as much as they could and then present their applications to a panel of judges.
A team mainly from Freshfields won the London round with an application called Clausana. The Clausana product is a cloud-based (Azure technology) app to help consumers bring Terms & Conditions into the decision-making process, to help people rate and choose between services such as car rental and other digital services (see interview below).
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
