Law & Justice leads research into the challenges brought by technological innovation.

We have a strong focus on its impact on law reform and policy, legal education and legal practice in Australia and around the world. Our work cuts across doctrines (from private and public to criminal law), new technologies (from artificial intelligence and automation to synthetic biology) and industries (from financial services to medical care). The Allens Hub for Technology, Law & Innovation is the first Australian university research initiative of its kind.
