Allens Neota UTS Law Tech Challenge for Social Justice

Join us for the Grand Final of the Allens Neota UTS Law Tech Challenge for Social Justice, where each team will present their law apps to promote access to justice and where a 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 Allen, Tim Hartin, Group Company Secretary & Chief Operating Officer for Compliance, Legal & Secretariat at Westpac and Professor Lesley Hitchens, Dean of UTS Law. You’ll have the chance to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award and connect with professionals and students with a keen interest in technology and social justice!

Participating NGOs include:

  • Anti-Slavery Australia
  • Aurora Project
  • Inner City Legal Centre Sydney
  • Refugee Advice and Casework Service (RACS)
