GLH 2019 Romania - 2nd Place

The second-placed team, Summarizel, proposed a Chrome browser extension (soon other solutions), which summarizes and translates all Terms and Conditions.

The advantages brought by the solution include internet transparency, accessible language, fast and easy access to relevant information. The solution can be a useful resource for observing the transparency imposed by GDPR andcombines legal, technical, design, UX / UI to capture the user's attention and help him understand what he accepts, in easy words. Summarizel team: Ruxandra Sava - Innovation, Technology & Privacy Lawyer, Ecaterina Donciu - Graphic Designer, Diana Marusic - TechWizard, Eugene Cernei - TechWizard.

GLH 2019 Romania - 3rd Place

The third place was obtained by Lucky Team 1 who proposed an "Uber" for legal services for simple emergency solutions. Their project answers a problem that all of us encounter at some point: the need of an urgent advice from a lawyer, an advice that can get you out oftrouble and prevent long-term hardship. Avocat NonStop (“NonStopLawyer”) creates a permanent link between a lawyer and any individual in need at the distance of a simple phone call. The problem the lawyer can quickly give a useful answer to can be diverse, from being pulled over by the police to not understanding a certain clause from a contract in front of you.Our solution comes in two forms, either through a short phone number to be remembered easily by users, or through a mobile application that connects the user with the appropriate lawyer qualified to give a suitable answer to the said problem. As for the future plans, interactive voice response software(IRV) and machine learning could be implemented to improve the efficiency of the product. LuckyTeam 1 team is made up of two lawyers, AndreaPantiru -Dentons and Mihai Dolhescu - Clifford Chance.
