“What I enjoy most about Le Hackies,” DC Legal Hackers organizer Rebecca Williams told, “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

Organization of the Year

  • The Open Technology Institute for its tech policy advocacy and launching TechCongress.
