The Centre for Legal Innovation undertakes its work within five key areas or pillars:
- The Future of Legal Practice (2017);
- LegalTech (2017);
- Diversity and Inclusion (2017/18);
- The Future of Legal Education (2019); and
- Access to Justice (2019).
The purpose of these pillars is to focus but not limit the type of work undertaken by the Centre. It assists us in making decisions about what the Centre does and does not do.
The Centre is undertaking work in each of these areas sequentially. This means that the Centre will have undertaken work in each of these key areas by 2019, but it may not undertake work in all of these areas every year. The roll out of the Centre’s work areas is noted by year beside each of the pillars above.
Our work under each pillar typically involves a research project undertaken by one of our Research Fellows and an event, workshop or course developed by one of our Distinguished Fellows. This work is coordinated by an Associate Director.
