The Pitch In Partnership with The Canadian Bar Association
The Pitch is back in 2018!
The Canadian Bar Association has engaged Law Made to once again bring The Pitch to a large audience.
This go round — we’re global baby!
We’re bringing top early-stage legal technology startups together on stage to compete for big prizes—and the attention of potential partners and investors.
Each startup will have the chance to pitch their ideas to an expert panel of judges. And it will all take place in front of a live audience of professionals from the legal and startup industries.
The Pitch will cap off the international conference Beyond Borders: Business and Law in the Global Village from April 29 to May 1, 2018 which is being hosted by the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association and In-House Counsel Worldwide.
There are 400 attendees expected from Fortune 500 companies.
The Pitch will close out the event on May 1st.

Five legal tech entrepreneurs culled from over 30 entrants were each given seven minutes to introduce their products to a panel of judges, all in front of an audience of several hundred, often bemused and perhaps even confused, lawyers.
