The Hamburg Legal Hackers chapter has gotten off to a great start! Co-organizer Dalia Moniat sends us the following report on the Hamburg chapter’s most recent event:

The 5th Hamburg Legal Hackers Meetup took place on August 9, 2018 at Hogan Lovells with about 70 participants from various law firms, companies and universities on the subject of “Young Geex in a Hoodie”.

For the first time, the entire crew of the Hamburg Legal Hackers Chapter (Lukas Kellermeier, Nico Kuhlmann, Dirk Hartung, Dalia Moniat, Daria Suvorova, Zoë Andreae) was present to announce the founding of the new Hamburg Chapter.

After a warm welcome by Yvonne Draheim, partner at Hogan Lovells in the IPMT department in Hamburg, Nico Kuhlmann (organizer of the event) led the evening as usual.

He began by setting the evening’s hashtag for Twitter (#hltm5), briefly summarizing the topics of the first, second, third, and fourth Meetups, and reviewing the events of recent months in the legal tech scene in Germany and around the world.

Afterwards there was a lively discussion. This time, the stage was deliberately set for the next generation to hear how they perceive digital transformation and what points are important to them. The participants were Dalia Moniat (Law student, Coordinator of the pro bono legal aid project “Cyber Law Clinic”), Daniella Domokos (Law student, blogger of and Paul Schirmer (Law student, Founder of MLTech).

All in all, the student speakers were looking for more interdisciplinary and hands-on experience.

They agreed that they are seeking a modern legal education that is updated to the current challenges of the digital age.

Keep up the good work, Hamburg!
