BrainFactory is a three-day event with highly interactive, immersive and inspiring hands-on workshops, brainstorming sessions, and prototyping exercises.

What is BrainFactory?

At BrainFactory, teams with diverse backgrounds solve complex problems in teams of 5-6 people. Each team will have a legal design professional as a mentor. Our BrainFactory team together with our Partners create the challenging BrainFactory problems that arise from real life examples from the cross-sections of law and design thinking.

BrainFactory will take place 11-13 September 2023.
