We Power Innovation — Vote for our Partners!
At Free Law Project, we talk with many legal tech startups each year. This year two startups that we partner with have been announced as finalists for the ABA TechShow Startup Alley in Chicago this coming March.
Since 2009, we have worked tirelessly to improve the legal system. By creating foundational data and open-source software, we provide a launchpad for others that want to join our fight. This allows innovators and entrepreneurs to focus on their own unique contributions, rather than having to build data sets and tools from scratch. They partner with us in a variety of ways from commercial use licenses for our APIs to complete database replication that is updated in real time to building custom datasets and open source tools they can use to power their work.
As we move into an era where AI plays an increasingly significant role in legal tech, our commitment to open access is more crucial than ever. The tens of millions of documents we make available provide a robust legal foundation for innovators, AI developers, and entrepreneurs to develop models and new products that will continue to propel legal tech into the future.
The ABA TECHSHOW is where lawyers, legal professionals, and technology come together for three days to talk about some of the newest technologies available. Startup Alley provides an opportunity for 15 startups to participate in a live pitch competition and have booths in a special section of the exhibit hall. Two legal tech startups included in the list of 25 finalists are powered by data from Free Law Project.
Here's how they describe themselves:
