About Legathon

In the 21st century, society’s needs are different, and people want their utilities and services at their fingertips or on their tables. So as students, professionals, educators etc., we can’t just put up hopes over the prevailing systems and mechanisms – modern problems need modern solutions.

If we want a modern answer to modern problems now or in the future, we’ll need preventative measures and mechanisms, as well as speedier justice for crime victims. To make this vision a reality, society must prepare for the digital age’s unknowns.
