Melbourne Law School students have designed and built a range of legal help websites to provide the public with fast, accurate and cost-effective information about common legal problems including inaccurate credit reports, handling and managing fines, and assessing employment rights.
Dean of Melbourne Law School, Professor Carolyn Evans, said that new technologies were providing innovative solutions in the law.
“Legal expert systems are a growing part of the legal landscape, assisting Australian and international lawyers to provide fast, accurate and cost-effective answers to common legal problems,” Professor Evans said.
Subject teacher, Mr Gary Cazalet, said the subject offered at the Melbourne Law School received support from Georgetown University, law firm Slater and Gordon and technology platform Neota Logic -a platform providing non-programmers with the tools to efficiently build, test, maintain, and deploy expert applications.
“During the development of their websites, students receive substantial and ongoing advice from Neota Logic’s experts both in Australia and the US, enabling students to create applications of the highest quality,” Mr Cazalet said.
