The future of law reform: Technology and the Law
Wednesday 12th June 2019
Time 1.30pm – 3.00pm
The Moot Theatre, College of Law, Australian National University



The Australian Law Reform Commission and the Australian National University are pleased to present a PDF iconpanel discussion on the future of law reform in Australia. The discussion progresses the ALRC’s new project seeking public input to assist in identifying areas of Australian law which may benefit from reform. The project generally will be broad-ranging and will consider suggestions relating to any area of law. However, this panel event, to be hosted by ANU's Law Reform and Social Justice program, will focus on issues relating to technology and the law. The influence of technology is ever-increasing in our society, including the development of artificial intelligence and regulation of cyber-activity. Consequently, a number of areas of law are likely to require review and reform to maintain relevance and effectiveness. Discussions and suggestions made at the event will be considered by the ALRC in developing a proposed multi-year programme of law reform inquiries for the consideration of the Commonwealth Attorney-General.


Join Professor Sally Wheeler, Dean of ANU College of Law, Justice Sarah Derrington, President of the ALRC, Associate Professor Matthew Zagor, Dr Lesley Seebeck, Peter Leonard, and Dr Imogen Saunders for an interactive evening discussing law reform priorities with the potential to shape the future of Australian law.
