What is the QM Legal Tech Academy?
The first society-organised academy on Legal Tech! With keynote talks from firms and workshops by legal tech companies, the academy aims at preparing students to face legal challenges with technological solutions.
Learning how companies create the tech and how firms implement those innovations will allow you to have an overview of the field of legal tech and an understanding of how those innovative mindsets are shaping the future of law!
The firms attending the QMLTA are at the forefront of Legal Tech. Those firms set themselves apart from their counterparts due to their vision. Attending the QMLTA will allow you to understand the firm's vision better, which is crucial during application season. Attending the Academy will also allow you to obtain a QMLTA CERTIFICATE, a way to showcase on your CV/Linkedin your interest in the fast-growing sector of Legal Tech and a way to align with the firms represented by acknowledging their effort to share their insights.
The QMLTA will run from 30th Nov to 11th Dec. We have 7 events aligned over two weeks.
The idea with timing is that the QMLTA is at a crucial part of application season, it will be the last opportunity, to learn about firms and network right before the Christmas break - during which Vac scheme/ TC applications are written.
