What are the implications for the legal profession as blockchain technologies, smart contracts, apps and online dispute resolutions shift our approach to matters of law?
Kate Galloway joins us to talk about how tech is disrupting the way we think about lawyering. She is a Eureka Street columnist, former practicing lawyer, and academic, with a keen interest in the intersection between tech and legal practice.
In this episode, she discusses how digital access to information has democratised the way people engage with the law, whether lawyers can remain relevant, and how liability fits into algorithm-driven decisions. She also touches on the legal and ethical problems posed by tech, especially when enacted by legislators with limited understanding of it.
