Bringing Law into the 21st century

Imagine a world in which you can approve a legal contract as quickly and easily as a Tap and Go EFTPOS transaction. Sound outside of the realm of possibility? You might be surprised.

In next week’s Professorial Lecture, based on his published work, Professor John Hopkins takes a closer look at the increasing cost of legal advice, the excessive formality of the legal system and whether the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain (a subset of distributed ledger technology (DLT) will see the extinction of the legal profession as we know it.

We encourage all staff and postgrad students to attend this Professorial lecture and learn more about this imminent advancement in the legal field.
