LexLab Welcomes Eight Startups to its Inaugural Justice Technology Accelerator Program

    September 07, 2023 | at UC Law San Francisco

    This week, LexLab, an innovation hub at UC Law San Francisco, welcomes eight startups for its inaugural Justice Technology Accelerator program.


    Following the established success of its Legal Technology Accelerator offering, LexLab has partnered with gener8tor, Village Capital, and the Justice Technology Association to create a groundbreaking accelerator program supporting justice tech startups. The eight companies selected to participate this Fall were chosen from a record number of applications -- more than LexLab has received for any of its previous accelerator programs.


    The ten week program will meet weekly online, with curriculum presented by LexLab, gener8tor, Village Capital, and SpiceBox, a creative and strategic consulting firm for the legal profession.


    The program will culminate in a Demo Day on November 14th, where the eight startups will showcase their work to investors and members of the justice tech community. You can visit Eventbrite to learn more and register for the Justice Tech Demo Day.
