LawTech Malaysia started as an independent grassroot movement with an aim to create a more dynamic legal technology ecosystem in Malaysia.
In October 2018, the grassroot movement culminated in the LawTech Hackathon 2018, the first of its kind in the nation. The Hackathon garnered the participation of about 200 people across 8 countries, and have generated 21 unique Minimum Viable Products (MVPs).
Since then, LawTech Malaysia has been strengthening its network of affiliations with the legal, finance, technology, regulatory and business verticals across the ASEAN region to further its aims.
In January 2018, LawTech Malaysia officially launched as an independent corporation - Tech Law Sdn Bhd, to provide stakeholders with better transparency and accountability.
In 2019, LawTech Malaysia will be launching its maiden LawTech Accelerator Programme ‒ SUPERNOVA.
