Tech Fellowship:
Document Automation



The Evolve Law Tech Fellowship is a prestigious four month program based in New York for in-house counsel and legal operations professionals that focuses on education and implementation of specific legal technologies.

The first 2017 program focuses on document automation or assembly technologies. Fellows will participate in a fast-paced accelerator-style program that includes educational content; product development and design thinking training; product demos; and hands-on implementation support.

At the end of the Fellowship participants will better understand the document automation landscape, have a framework for assessing other technologies and see tangible results from a pilot project implemented during the program.
