Neota Logic, creators of the world’s leading AI automation platform digitizing for professional services, and the University of Melbourne, announced today a series of Legal Design Thinking events with Neota Logic Visiting Fellow, Dr. Margaret Hagan, Director of the Legal Design Lab at Stanford University.
The first event, the ‘Digital Citizens Conference’, is being held on the 24h – 26th July at Melbourne Law School where Dr. Hagan will be speaking about ‘A Human-Centred Future of Courts’ alongside Dr. Andrea Siodmok, Head of the Policy Lab at the UK Government’s Cabinet Office on ‘Open Civics’. The session will be held at 6 – 7pm on the 25th July at the David P Derham Theatre at the Law School.
This will be the first in a series of events run in July 2019 with Dr. Hagan, the aim of which is to generate ideas for how legal and governmental services can be improved, using a design-driven approach to innovation.
“I am very excited to be exploring how human centred design can be transforming how people access their rights and the legal system, through this collaboration. Australia has been at the forefront of improving government digital services, and the Law Apps course at University of Melbourne has shown how tech can be deployed for access to justice. I am looking forward to working on how to make more human-centred policies, regulatory sandboxes, and tech innovation.” Dr. Hagen said.
“Melbourne Law School welcomes the support from Neota Logic to continue our collaboration with Dr. Margaret Hagan, one of the world’s leading legal designers. Dr. Hagan will work with MLS staff and members of the legal sector on a range of projects, including how to further embed design and collaboration across the sector. MLS students will also benefit from her insights into curriculum,” said Professor Pip Nicholson, Dean, Melbourne Law School.
Julian Uebergang, Managing Director, APAC at Neota Logic commented, “We are delighted to be working with Dr Hagan and Law Apps lecturer, Gary Cazelet, on this new initiative. It’s important to think about new ways of working to reform legal services to become more efficient and user-friendly”.
