There are many ways in which the law operates in an international context. Issues of global concern such as climate change, terrorism and economic development require cooperation between nations through agreements and treaties. The increased internationalisation of communication, financial interests and business transactions means that individuals and companies are increasingly required to engage with the laws of other countries and that domestic legal systems must operate in an international context.

Exploration of the challenges raised by different technologies across both parts of this unit are guided by broader considerations of fairness, accountability and transparency (FAT).

LLB251 Law and Design Thinking

Students will use technology-based tools to engage in online workshops in real-time and they will undertake an in-person 2-day intensive design-sprint working in collaborative teams and with industry to respond to an authentic legal challenge. 

LLB252 Legal Coding

There is a significant and growing need for statutes, and other forms of law, to be converted into computer code. To do so, requires using traditional legal skills, such as how to read a statute, in new and innovative ways. Coding law is not a purely technical activity. It is a legal activity that results in new forms of interpretative output - legal code. In LLB252, you will gain insight into the interesting and challenging problems in translating legal language and legal techniques into computer code. You will learn how to (a) read and map statutory clauses to identify key legal obligations for coding (b) code relevant statutory clauses into machine readable computer code (c) test the accuracy of coded outputs against different legal standards.

LLB341 Artificial Intelligence, Robots and the Law

As new technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics become more infused in our business, government and social lives, difficult legal, ethical, regulatory and policy questions arise. Developments in machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and robotics raise interesting and urgent issues surrounding the regulation of automated decision-making, privacy, liability and insurance, competition and consumer regimes, and the future of work.

LLB346 Succession Law

Our legal system is premised on the right of individuals to own private property. Succession deals with the legal consequences of death on a person's property. It has links to other important areas of law, namely equity and trusts, property law and family law. Succession is a strongly developing area of legal practice. Family provision actions are increasing as more people challenge will dispositions or inheritance by way of intestacy on the grounds of inadequate provision. Estate planning is becoming a major area of practice. The notion of what is the 'estate' at death is a developing area of law, with some inter vivos transactions being set aside as unconscionable bargains or contracts being of limited effect.

With its links to real property, equity, trusts and family law, Succession will assist you to see the connection between different areas of law.
