“What I enjoy most about Le Hackies,” DC Legal Hackers organizer Rebecca Williams told Technical.ly, “is that it brings together many law, tech, and law/tech organizations that are all doing great things in D.C., but might not necessarily know each other.”
And that’s precisely what Williams and her co-organizers did on Wednesday night.
Taking over The Loft at 600 F for the second year in a row, the legal hacking community convened for an event that promised to be “part awards show, part new years party, all #legalhack.”
Here’s who was honored:
Company of the Year
- YouTube (Google) for its Fair Use Protection Program.
Organization of the Year
- The Open Technology Institute for its tech policy advocacy and launching TechCongress.
Legal Hacker of the Year
- Kirsten Gullickson, who works in the Office of the Clerk, was given the award for her work improving access to Congressional data.
