According to the organisation, the aim of this initiative is to connect and share knowledge with thousands of professionals from all around the world and to quickly identify and generate synergies with the main players in the sector, both by geographical area and by legaltech verticals.
After the successful first edition of GLTHday, a 12-hour non-stop content event that brought together approximately 1,000 professionals from more than 35 countries and over 50 international speakers, they realised that “GLTH was born to be a global and itinerant project. It is necessary to keep connecting relevant actors in the sector around the world. Each connection is a multiplication of opportunities”, as Laura Urquizu, President of GLTH, explained.
Next March 2nd at 11 am (CET time), they will participate in MWC – 4YFN Barcelona (Stand Sabadell), where they will present this initiative and officially introduce all the members mentioned above as well as the challenges and projects GLTH has for this year while analysing the trends of the sector.

About Global LegalTech Hub
The Global LegalTech Hub is an initiative that brings together different operators (professionals, startups, companies, institutions and the academic world) to write the future of a new Legal industry leveraged by technological innovation.
The hub was born with the aim of connecting and spreading international legaltech, from a privileged vision of the technology and from the best practices at a global scale.
The hub is open to participation and is declared neutral from a professional point of view, both professional (lawyers, notaries, registrars, etc.) and academic or technological.
