Funding awarded to new providers of the LawtechUK programme
The Ministry of Justice announced on 15 March that funding has been awarded to two new providers, CodeBase and Legal Geek, of the LawtechUK programme, which aims to support the transformation of the UK legal sector through technology.
The consortium has been awarded £3 million in funding by the Ministry of Justice following the completion of a competitive bidding process. The two new providers aim to build on LawtechUK’s success and support the ongoing work of the industry-led body that promotes the use of English law alongside digital legal innovations, otherwise known as the UK Jurisdiction Taskforce. LawtechUK supported the recent legal statement on digital securities issued by the Jurisdiction Taskforce.
