The first Meet Up of Legal Hackers was a great success. We held the first Meet Up at JR BBQ in Itaewon. A group of passionate entrepreneurs, lawyers and technologists go together and discussed the shutdown of Uber in Korea. The event was sponsored by IPG Legal.
We decided, after a three hour meeting (and a few drinks), to share thoughts on how to manage this group via the Legal Hackers Meet Up group site. We, also, decided that each group will either have a group member make a presentation on a topic or we will have a guest speaker.
We have not scheduled the next Meet Up yet. Likely, the next Meet Up of Legal Hackers will occur in early May 2015.
