Judging Process

The spirit of the LegalTech Breakthrough Awards is to highlight the BREAK THROUGH products, solutions and companies within the crowded field of Legal Tech around the globe.

Judging Criteria

We intentionally keep the submission process simple, focused on nominees addressing the question – “How does your company or product break through the crowded field of legal technology solutions available on the market today?”

The judging process is also a streamlined one. All award nominations are fully analyzed, evaluated and scored by our expert panel of judges, representing a mix of technical, business, academic and analytical expertise within the technology industry.

The evaluation criteria for the LegalTech Breakthrough Awards program are focused around the concept of innovation. We have developed the evaluation criteria and a corresponding set of assessment tools and scales that we believe allow for a fair, honest and equitable assessment of each entry.

All entries will be judged on the Tech Breakthrough criteria
