ICAM Library and RocaJunyent are winners of GLH 2022

The teams sponsored by the Madrid Bar Association Library and RocaJunyent have won the Global Legal Hackaton 2022, which brought together technologists and lawyers this weekend in Madrid to promote the development of technological tools to solve one of the four challenges posed by the organisation

In addition to developing an application aimed at solving the humanitarian, economic and legal challenges caused by war, participants could focus their developments on legal business, facilitating access to justice or promoting the use of blockchain technology to bring efficiency and trust to the global challenge of the disparity of standards, compliance, and reporting on ESG criteria.

Refugee assistance

In the challenge to improve the administrative, employment and personal situation of Ukrainians displaced by the war, the jury chose the project “Dear Sasha”, developed by a multidisciplinary team sponsored by the ICAM Library. The tool seeks to streamline the bureaucratic procedures to which NGOs working with displaced persons are being subjected, a step prior to the submission of this information to public administrations. According to its authors, most of whom are young lawyers from small law firms, the aim is to reduce the timing of these processes.

Blockchain and compliance

For its part, the RocaJunyent team won recognition for the “B_ESG” project, a platform based on blockchain technology to ensure companies’ compliance with environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG criteria). Thanks to this tool, organisations can upload documentation based on these criteria, allowing them to easily know the metrics and the degree of compliance according to the objectives of each organisation, which is linked to reputation.

The profits from GLH 2022, which was hosted by ICAM as part of its 425th anniversary, will be donated to the Spanish Commission for Refugee Support (CEAR). In addition, a team of lawyers and experts in design thinking have worked altruistically with the organisation to improve CEAR’s refugee guide, with the aim of making it more useful, understandable, accessible and complete for those who need it.
