On Wednesday 10th July, students at UTS (University of Technology Sydney) will compete in this year’s ‘Law Tech Challenge for Social Justice’, where each team will present their law apps to promote access to justice.

At the event, students will present the applications they have created in the Neota platform to promote access to justice, and the winner will be announced at the end.

Over the year, teams of UTS Law Brennan Justice and Leadership students have teamed up with lawyers and technologists from international law firm Allens to create law apps using artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
Each team has worked closely with a participating NGO to identify a problem experienced by the NGO’s clients and to develop an online solution.

UTS Law students and the Allens participants have built the law apps using Neota Logic software, designed specifically for developers with no prior programming experience.

Based on an original program developed in the USA by Georgetown University Law School and Neota Logic Inc, UTS is the first law school in Sydney to implement the Law Tech Challenge, this is the third year the Challenge has run.

Be inspired as the lawyers of today and tomorrow present their apps to an expert panel of judges including Richard Spurio, Managing Partner at Allens, Alison Telfer, Managing Director Blackrock, and Professor Lesley Hitchens, Dean of UTS Law.

2019 Participating NGOs include:

  • Inner City Legal Centre (ICLC)
  • Law Society of New South Wales
  • Redfern Legal Centre (RLC)
  • The Humanitarian Group

Tune into the Facebook live stream from the comfort of your own couch to cheer these social justice warriors on!
