The University of Newcastle Law School’s Centre for Law and Social Justice invites expressions of interest from academics, lawyers, advocates and other interested persons to participate in its 2022 Justice Innovation Symposium. The Symposium is primarily an in-person event to be held on Friday 9 December 2022 from 9.30am – 4.30pm at the University of Newcastle’s NUspace Campus, 409 Hunter Street Newcastle. Hybrid participation can be facilitated and international submissions are welcomed. The pandemic has changed the pace of justice innovation across legal institutions and legal practice. Courts and tribunals have relied more heavily on technology to conduct proceedings while lawyers have incorporated virtual technology into their practices. However, it has not been without its challenges.

The Centre for Law and Social Justice welcomes submissions for presentation at the Justice Innovation Symposium reflecting on the advances and challenges of the pandemic in the broader context of justice innovation. How might these changes and challenges continue to be addressed by the legal system and the legal profession? What developments in the field of justice innovation might be advanced in the next 5 – 10 years? Submissions are welcome on topics incorporating innovations in justice including:

  • Lawyers and Legal Practice
  • Lawyers and Pro-Bono Legal Services
  • Technology - including Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Legal Education
  • Courts, Tribunals and other institutions
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Other topics relevant to justice innovation

To express an interest in participating, please email us by Monday 24 October 2022. More details can be found here. Registration will open on the 24 October 2022.
