Previously, GEEKLAW entered into a multiyear agreement with New Time Media. The purpose of the agreement is for New Time Media to build and maintain two of GEEKLAW’s internet assets; its web portal (unigeeklaw.co.uk) and blog (legalbrew.co.uk). The web portal is in production stage and the blog is in Beta.
The formal launch for both sites is on 18 March 2015, at 6:00 PM at Hotel Maiyango; a boutique hotel in the heart of Leicester. Hotel Maiyango is owned by a University of Leicester School of Law graduate; Mr Aatin Anadkat. Mr. Anadkat has agreed to sponsor the formal launch of GEEKLAW’s website and blog. The guest list will be made up of partners from law firms, business leaders, academics, government officials, university staff and the leadership of the law societies. The event will be covered by Leicester Mercury.
Mr Neil Binley, founder of New Time Media: “This has been an especially satisfying project and one that we have been very happy to sponsor and support. We designed a practical administrator interface that enables a range of sophisticated features that would be expected from a high-tech, prestigious university. These include: Social media integration, video, blogs, faculty updates, lecturer/student forums, podcasts … and much more.”
Mr Abraham Tuyo, founder of GEEKLAW: “When we invited companies to submit proposals for the development of our website, we received over twenty-three bids. Many of these companies are based offshore. We needed a company with demonstrable experience working with student societies; and one that can handle the yearly change in leadership. We found a partner in New Time Media; a Leicester based company. Besides its extensive portfolio of projects, expertise in web technologies and knowledge acquired from developing complex ecommerce sites for businesses in various industries, New Time Media provides consultative services that goes beyond its core competencies. In over a year that I have known Neil Binley, he is both a consummate technical and business adviser.”
GEEKLAW and New Time Media are working on the next phase of web portal. It will feature the integration of best-of-breed legal software systems from one UK’s leading providers. Access to the software will be free, and backed by certification courses, online tutorials and product manual; further updates will be provided shortly.
Founded in 1966, the University of Leicester School of Law consistently features among the top law schools in the United Kingdom. GEEKLAW was founded by students at the University of Leicester School of Law. Officially known as the Information Technology Law Society, GEEKLAW is affiliated with the University of Leicester Students’ Union. Its mission is to incorporate ICT (Information and Communication Technology) into the academic life of law students; and prepare them for entry into high-tech industries and a technology-driven legal profession.
