We are proud to announce that Jur has been selected to participate in Mishcon De Reya’s MDR LAB. The program will start in December 2020 and continue for twelve weeks. To reduce COVID-19 risks, the entire program will be run remotely. MDR LAB is a series of programmes that seek to launch, improve and scale the next generation of LegalTech. It receives approximately 100-150 startup applications and cohort membership is competitive and exclusive. MDR LAB’s 2020 acceleration program "Improve" represents a unique opportunity to work with a top legal tech team that has a proven track record to boost the upcoming launch of our Open Justice Platform. Jur and the MDR LAB team will work closely on establishing product-market fit and the testing and polishing of the roadmap for the Open Justice Platform, a new dispute resolution system designed to deliver faster, affordable, and more reliable justice in 166 jurisdictions worldwide. The MDR team and the MDR LAB have professionals such as Tom Grogan, Alistair Moore and Nick West, all of whom offer a unique expertise in DLT technologies. One of MDR’s most recent achievements is the creation of the White paper for DLT use for the UK Land Registry. Jur will participate in the program alongside Draftwise, a knowledge management and contract drafting startup. Founded by ex-Palantir team members with a core team based out of New York. Draftwise recently graduated from the Y Combinator 2020 batch. We are really excited to join the MDR LAB. We encountered an outstanding team with deep expertise in DLT projects and a successful track-record in supporting startups who are scaling up. I believe that this cooperation will be strategically beneficial for the product-market fit of Jur and will help achieve our milestones over the coming months. We are extremely excited to start this journey!Alessandro Palombo, CEO of Jur We were originally interested in Jur because we have a shared vision of how we can use technology to democratise arbitration and improve the way it currently works. This is something MDR LAB have thought about for some time and the impetus to change has only intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to bringing the best of the MDR Group and our subject matter experts to help Jur achieve their business and societal objectives.Dan Sinclair, head of the MDR LAB We are developing the first multi-jurisdiction online dispute resolution platform, the Open Justice Platform.
