It is no longer a secret that the job market for lawyers is changing. It’s no longer legal talent applying to employers, but the other way around. “In 1999, there were still more than 10,000 graduates of the second state exam, but in 2019 there were only 8,034,” says Sebastian von Glahn, CEO of TalentRocket. Especially in the field of legal tech, the pool of applicants is currently still particularly small, but the demand on the market is particularly high due to the high relevance of the topic. Legal tech has become increasingly relevant for the entire legal market in recent years. “The combination of legal knowledge as well as tech understanding is extremely in demand in the legal market,” explains Antonia Pape, co-founder of Nominandum and on the board of the Legal Tech Association. In order to create a platform for legal tech talent and employers, two industry giants, Legal Tech Verband Deutschland and TalentRocket, have now joined forces.


The aim of the cooperation is to achieve a precise match between talents and employers. The Legal Tech Association Germany launched its “Digital Referendariat” platform at the beginning of the year. Here, young talents can find trainee positions in the legal tech sector. Now the association is cooperating with TalentRocket to expand this offering. The focus remains clearly on jobs in the legal tech sector. Sebastian von Glahn: “The interface we cover with this cooperation is unique. We at TalentRocket bring our algorithm-based recruiting tool and reach, the association its unique network of all legal tech players.”
