GitHub for lawyers: Using the idea of crowds/commons to hinder monopolies in the legal market.


Since 2011, the term legaltech has become current in Germany and stands for a potential radical change in the distribution of legal services - the result of which may be a further accumulation of power in the hands of already powerful market players. We want to conceptualize a way of spreading that power in a more equal, open-source and less profit oriented way between those who may otherwise disappear by competing with upcoming monopolies. Let's create a GitHub for lawyers.
