Hackathon Highlights

This week, the Brooklyn Law Incubator & Policy (“BLIP”) Clinic announced the winners of  the hacking competitions as part of last month’s successful Legal Hackathon held at Brooklyn Law School. There were two competitions. In the #HackTheAct competition, First Prize went to the proposal DMCA for Trademarks which BLS Class of 2012 students Warren Allen, Sean Comerford, and Elliott Siebers submitted with Sarah Feingold, in-house counsel for Etsy. The Runner-Up was David Collado, student at Cardozo School of Law, for his proposal Kill the Trolls. The Docracy Contract Hacking Competition winner was Boyan Toshkoff, BLS Class of 2014, for his proposal Indemnification Agreement – Standard Corporate.
