Organisation

Technolawgeeks is an interdisciplinary community of students, academic staff, and entrepreneurs interested in the overlap between the fields of law and technology. Technolawgeeks was born from the need for an initiative to bring closer those with different knowledge backgrounds to tackle current problems together. We saw an interaction gap between both academic fields that needed to be bridged, and decided to take matters into our own hands and do so by organizing events that would also foster the creation of a community. Co-founded by Caroline Calomme (alumna, former Law lecturer, founder of Legal Hackers Brussels), Arturo Sanchez Barbado (student DKE/SBE/Law), and Catalina Goanta (Assistant Professor Private Law & Tech), Technolawgeeks’ motto is ‘Smart devices already communicate, why shouldn’t we?‘.
