An independent impact assessment of LawtechUK conducted in 2022 indicated that the programme has been effective in achieving the objectives of the grant, including by helping to solidify the UK’s position as a leader in lawtech. A summary of the impact assessment was published on the LawtechUK website: LawtechUK Impact Assessment report 2022.
