LawtechUK, a Ministry of Justice-backed initiative aimed at spearheading the digital transformation of the legal sector, has opened its Lawtech Scaler Programme for applications.

This cohort-based programme, designed for founders of UK registered companies who already have a lawtech product in market, will enable them to turn early-stage traction into a commercially successful business. 

Lawtech Scaler has been designed for ambitious founders with an MVP looking to build early traction quickly or companies looking to solve specific challenges, for example companies with a product with active customer acquisition looking to scale; a revenue-generating product already in market, but perhaps struggling with growth; or a product looking to go beyond its early adopters.

Founders do not need to part with any equity or money, as the free 10-week course covers everything needed to scale a startup MVP including growth tactics and startup playbooks. Key topics include business strategy, product growth, sales, marketing, team building, funding, revenue generation, funding, and scaling operations.

All sessions are interactive, featuring practical activities, lectures, panels, and group discussions.

“We need more lawtech companies in the UK who can help both to shape the future of legal services and also to maintain and enhance our reputation as a global legal leader,” said Professor Richard Susskind OBE, LawtechUK advisory panel member.

“With this in mind, at LawTechUK we want to support emerging lawtech businesses and help them to thrive.  The Scaler programme is our way of making this happen.”
