The Allens Hub for Technology, Law and Innovation has officially launched. The Hub is a joint venture between Allens and UNSW Law, and will pioneer ground-breaking research into the impact of rapid technological change on the law. The Hub will also be home to the Law Society of NSW’s FLIP Project, about the legal industry in the digital age.
Professor George Williams AO, Dean, UNSW Law, said the benefits and opportunities that would flow from the new Hub and FLIP Stream were enormous.
“This is incredibly important and necessary work that will have an impact upon some of the most important debates facing the community and the legal profession. The key is driving meaningful change and policy development for the real world”.
Keypoint’s CEO, Warren Kalinko, has been appointed to the Advisory Board of the Allens Hub, whose members include Ian McGill (Partner, Allens), Rebecca Lim (Westpac Group Executive – Compliance, Legal & Secretariat), John Price (Commissioner, Australian Securities and Investments Commission) and the Hon Justice Stephen Burley of the Federal Court of Australia. A full list of Advisory Board members can be found here.
Following the Advisory Board’s first meeting, Warren commented:
“We live in a time of disruptive technological change with far-reaching implications for the law and the legal profession. The Allens Hub will become a global leader in researching and solving the many legal challenges presented by this change. I’m delighted to be a member of the Advisory Board, and to contribute to its work”.
