2019 Allens Neota UTS Law Tech Challenge (invite only)
Join us for the grand final, where each team will present their law apps using artificial intelligence technology to promote access to justice and the winner will be announced.
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.
Be inspired as the lawyers of today and tomorrow present their apps 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.
You’ll have the chance to cheer these champions on whilst connecting with professionals and students with a keen interest in technology and social justice!
