Start Date
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Online Event

What will future laws look like? Who or what will understand them? Can laws be written so computers can understand them?


Join the Australian Society for Computers & Law and the Allens Hub for Technology, Law and Innovation for an expert discussion on how laws can be drafted for computers to understand and why are governments around the world are giving serious thought to drafting and translating legislation to code.

What does this mean for future laws and the people they govern? How can the rule of law and the public interest be protected when laws become digital?
