CodeX Affiliate Program

CodeX works to advance the state-of-art in technology that is used to improve legal and governance systems and industries that operate in them. Via the CodeX Affiliate Program, organizations operating at the intersection of law, governance, and technology work with us to advance the frontier of legal technology, increasing the efficiency and transparency of, and access to, legal systems around the world. Affiliate program membership fees provide CodeX unrestricted support and offer members a unique opportunity to collaborate with us. Members are encouraged to develop long-term, multi-year relationships. Companies interested in the law’s response to new technologies rather than technology for the law, might consider affiliate membership in the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology (LST).
