ReInvent Law NYC 2014 is a free and open public conference devoted to law, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the legal services industry. Attendance is absolutely free, but registration is required. 

Anyone interested in the future of law or technology or entrepreneurship/innovation will want to attend. ReInvent Law NYC promises a highly-engaging atmosphere at a historical venue, the Great Hall at Cooper Union, where you will hear about new innovations in the legal services industry (and beyond) and network with thought leaders and others interested in the next generation of law practice.

See the list of speakers and the schedule.

The ReInvent Law Laboratory was created at the Michigan State University College of Law by Professors Daniel Martin Katz and Renee Newman Knake in Spring 2012.

ReInvent Law, believes lawyers can change the world, but first they must change themselves. It is time to ReInvent. The markets for legal services and legal education are in serious peril. But there is a way forward. Cultivating four pillars of innovation for the legal services industry, Law, Tech, Design andDelivery, is the goal for the ReInvent Law Laboratory.

One way the ReInvent Law Laboratory works to cultivate the four pillars of innovation is by hosting ReInvent Law Conferences around the globe. Building on the success of the recent London, Dubai, and Silicon Valley events, the ReInvent Law Laboratory selected New York City due to both its renowned Big Law presence and burgeoning legal startup community.

Attendance is absolutely free, but registration is required. Tickets will be limited -- when they are gone, they are gone -- so please register today!

Located in The Great Hall, in the Foundation Building, 7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
