Keeping technology 'human centred'

White Background, Orange Underscore Ampersand

We recently hosted the Women Lawyers Association of NSW Law & Technology panel discussion. At this event, a panel of experts discussed the concept of keeping technology 'human centred', both in its application to the provision of legal services and in the administration of the law. The panellists covered the pros and cons of automation in the law, including the use of AI, and how technology can be used to enhance relationships between legal providers and clients.

The panel of experts included:

  • Shanti Berggren, General Counsel, Optus
  • Emma Johnston, ANZ Director of Legal, DXC Australia
  • Dr Philippa Ryan, Barrister & Lecturer, University of Technology Sydney
  • MC - Robert Neely, Partner, Lander & Rogers

Below are short videos from the panel discussion covering highlights of the conversations.
