LegalTech in Leeds conference returns bigger and better for 2024

The UK’s largest legal tech event outside London returns to the University of Leeds focusing on the themes of inclusion, innovation & inspiration.


The LegalTech in Leeds conference is set to make a triumphant return on 18 April 2024, at the University of Leeds. Following the remarkable success of its 2023 conference, which attracted over 200 in-person attendees from across the UK, this year’s event aims to explore the latest law tech trends, connecting industry leaders in the legal and tech sectors to explore innovations in this ever-evolving field.

Last year’s conference, hosted at the University of Leeds’s flagship building for business and law, garnered widespread acclaim. The event brought together the legal and tech sectors, firmly establishing Leeds as a hub for LegalTech and innovation.

With a lineup boasting over 50 speakers, including regional and national thought leaders, the event showcased the city’s burgeoning influence in the LegalTech sphere. Notable speakers at the 2023 conference included local and regional figures, along with a keynote from Mike Freer MP, minister for courts and legal services at the Ministry of Justice. Minister Freer expressed support for regional LegalTech initiatives and outlined how technology and innovation can drive growth for the UK legal sector.


Chloe Thompson, consultant at Whitecap Consulting, stated;

“The region has got an internationally renowned legal sector as well as a vibrant tech sector and bringing these together aims to catalyse collaboration and digital transformation and put Leeds firmly on the map for its LegalTech capabilities.

As we look to the third annual LegalTech in Leeds conference, we aim to exceed what we achieved last year by attracting over 300 delegates on the day, bringing together an audience of legal, tech and education, to hear from experts in the field, showcase innovators and tech entrepreneurs and connect with like-minded people.”


The 2024 conference promises to build upon last year’s achievements with an expanded agenda featuring four main sessions packed with insights from industry luminaries.

Attendees can look forward to engaging discussions, innovative showcases, and ample networking opportunities, solidifying LegalTech in Leeds as a must-attend event for professionals, tech enthusiasts and law students alike.
