© 2019 Law Is Code

Tech for Lawyers

Summer Masterclass

Traditional players fail at teaching tech to lawyers

Legal scholars deliver academical lectures that are detached from technical reality & day-to-day business constraints


Tech gurus provide aspirational talks that are disconnected from legal context

The Law Is Code Manifesto

We combine the best of law & tech to provide legal experts with hands-on, fun & interactive trainings
 

Our teachers are active practitioners & their combined expertise covers the whole spectrum of technology: software, hardware, networks, cybersecurity, data, eMarketing & artificial intelligence

Who should attend?

The masterclass is aimed at legal experts (in-house legal counsel & lawyers) who need to have a more-than-high-level understanding of technology to better assist their business (or their clients)

What will participants get?

1. Actionable understanding of the fundamental technologies used by businesses on a daily basis

2. Analysis of the legal risks prompted by those technologies & review of the contractual provisions to mitigate them

3. Concrete answers to questions based on real-life use cases that participants are invited to submit in advance

We will bust these tech concepts: on-premise software, SaaS, mobile apps, programming language (backend, frontend, full stack) (e.g. Python, HTML), web app frameworks (e.g. Django), platforms (e.g. Mendix), content management platforms (e.g. Wordpress, Drupal), open source (e.g. GPL, MIT), code libraries (e.g. jQuery), development methods (e.g. Scrum), maintenance vs. support, updates vs. upgrades

We will tackle these areas of law: intellectual property, general contract law

We will analyse these documents: software license agreement, SaaS agreement, open source licenses (copyleft/permissive), licensing exceptions, software development agreement, IP transfers, IP escrow agreement, support & maintenance terms, SLAs, IP clauses in share purchase agreements
