We have the pleasure to invite all the members of the FBE Bar Associations to take part in the International LegalTech Competition organized by the FBE New Technologies Commission. The theme of this year’s edition of the competition will be “E-access to Justice”. The task of the contestants is to demonstrate how the digitalization of justice may increase the efficiency of the legal system and facilitate access to justice. 

 The purpose of the Competition is to promote the activities of the FBE and to encourage innovative thinking among lawyers through engaging them into implementation of modern technologies into the justice system to introduce innovative ways of functioning of the judicial and extrajudicial dispute resolution processes. Participants are encouraged to present not only theoretical possibilities of the use of modern technology in justice but also practical – even technical – implementation opportunities in this field. 

The contest will have two stages:

1st stage (online): submit your presentation/video by 30 April 2022

2nd stage (onsite): after the first stage, the jury will select finalists who will take part in the second stage of the competition that will take place during the FBE General Congress in Sofia (Bulgaria), 23-25 June 2022. In this stage, the finalists shall make their speeches to the jury. 

The Participant shall be an individual or a team up to three persons. The individual or at least one person in a team shall be lawyer representing Bar Association associated in the FBE; other team members can be IT specialists, programmers, UX experts or representatives of other areas. There is no age limitation.
