FLIP 2018 Podcast: Unbundling for Access to Justice and Commercial Law

0.75 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Generic
Online
There are many drivers that continue to fuel the trend towards the unbundling of legal services, or the deconstruction of a legal service down into a set of constituent tasks. Amongst these are the affordability or cost of services, the limited availability of legal aid and pro bono services for individuals, the increased competition for various aspects of litigious and transactional matters, all of which is facilitated by developments in technology. This session will look at this trend from the perspectives of clients in the legal assistance sector, in-house corporate counsel, and from a litigious and transactional perspective to discuss the implications (risks, opportunities and responses) for clients and legal service providers. As unbundling cuts across a number of legal sectors, there is an opportunity for each sector to learn from the other.

FLIP 2019 Podcast: Change leadership for a dynamic profession

1 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Self assessed
Online
FLIP expresses the Law Society’s commitment to help prepare lawyers for a dynamic, uncertain and exciting future, in short, for change. Research indicates that lawyers are typically ill-equipped for change – they tend to avoid it, see it as stressful and/or a hassle, and are usually not taught how to lead or manage change in their organisations and their own working lives. This session will empower practitioners by giving them an in-depth understanding of what change looks like across the profession, and then ‘best practice’ strategies for them to set their own visions of change and to pursue them effectively. The session includes interview findings with lawyers and legal change managers, identifying the lessons of their change processes.

Knowledge area:
  • Self assessed
Online
This panel discussion will feature a range of speakers from courts and regulators who will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by the unfolding digital transformation taking place within those organisations. A wide range of relevant issues will be explored by panelists, including:
  • How their organisations will seek to balance the benefits of the use of technology with issues of fairness to the digitally disadvantaged citizen and to participants in technology-driven proceedings
  • How to ensure that AI makes courts and regulatory bodies more accessible for all users and stakeholders while mitigating any biases that may be inherent in algorithm reasoning that underpins AI
  • Whether existing laws and regulatory frameworks will remain sufficient for the outcomes created by digital transformation within our courts and regulators
  • What new tools and practices the legal profession will need to become proficient in order to represent clients in the court system and regulatory authorities
  • Issues of privacy and equity which might arise as a result of any integration of data from other government agencies with data held by courts and regulators

FLIP 2019 Podcast: Evolving legal services ecosystem

0.75 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Self assessed
Online
Only a few short years ago, organisations requiring legal services faced a simple choice: whether to employ lawyers ‘in-house’ or to engage law firms, or commonly, a combination of the two. Over the last decade, consistent with overseas trends, a diverse range of new providers has emerged in the Australian legal marketplace, from NewLaw businesses, to online providers, to Law Companies and LPO/LSO, LegalTech companies, flex-lawyer businesses and legal marketplaces, to name just a few. It is a complex supply ecosystem and buyers of legal services now enjoy greater choice than ever before. There are no indicators to suggest the trend will reverse in the coming years; in all likelihood, it will accelerate. The number of new entrants, many with new business and legal service delivery models, some which may be based outside of Australia due to the forces of globalisation, continue to multiply, as do the traditional law firms reinventing their offerings. This practical and lively panel session will discuss questions such as how should law firms pivot and adapt to take advantage of the opportunities and rise to the challenges of the new legal service ecosystem? How does a legal department get fit for this future? How do providers survive and thrive and how do buyers reap the rewards?

Hear firsthand from PEXA member Wood Marshall Williams, who will share insights into their experience with digital disruption and navigating through the new e-conveyancing landscape.

AI and the rule of law in government decision making
Governments around the world are using automation tools such as AI and expert systems to make decisions about rights and entitlements like social security benefits. Australia's Robo-debt system is a good example. This presentation examines the tension between the use of automation by government and the rule of law. It asks whether the rule of law is consistent with machines rather than humans being involved in the making of important government decisions.

Space law
How are commercial transactions different when they involve a space activity? Most commercial legal practitioners are familiar with the legal conventions associated with the sale and purchase of equipment and services. When this equipment is designed to be launched into space or the service involves the movement or operation of objects in space, the regulatory environment and risk management drivers are very different. Unlike equipment that is located on earth, most space-based assets cannot be accessed for recovery or repair if something goes wrong. This has led to a treatment of concepts like negligence, liability and insurance that differs from terrestrial transactions. Some of the conventional ways of treating these concepts are surprising to practitioners who are unfamiliar with the space industry. This presentation will outline some of the key concepts that underpin commercial relationships when the transaction has an outer space dimension, starting with the purchase of spacecraft and launch services.

FLIP 2019 Podcast: Implications of technology on Lawyers' professional duties

0.75 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Self assessed
Online
Lawyers are increasingly facing technological challenges of operating in the digital age. Cloud-based computer software applications, such as email accounts, file storage and file sharing, are commonly used by lawyers as part of the everyday practice of law. Lawyers are using legal-tech software applications provided by non-lawyer third parties that rely on artificial intelligence to deliver legal solutions. Fundamental to the lawyer’s practice of law is the duty to deliver legal services competently. As guardians of client sensitive information, lawyers also have confidentiality and privacy obligations. In this session, our panel will discuss practical ways lawyers can use technology in a manner that is compatible with the lawyers’ professional obligations, including supervision of the use of software services, understanding the benefits and risks associated with technology and maintaining the requisite level of technology competence relevant to their practice.

The needs, wants and desires of the legal profession’s diverse clients are in flux as the future unfolds. Some will be spoilt for choice, while others will have few options. This panel will explore the similarities and differences of clients from all corners of the community. Our aim is to make you think, make you reflect and make you decide how you can contribute to the future of your legal service delivery.

This session will also explore how clients’ needs are changing, if the needs of B2B and B2C clients are fundamentally different, what the needs, wants and desires of clients are and how well lawyers cater for them, and if trends in clients’ buying behaviours are being driven by lawyers or by clients.

FLIP 2019 Podcast: The Great Debate

1 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Self assessed
Online
The legal services landscape is changing, but will this result in a profession that better meets consumer needs and expectations and improves access to justice? Clients are seeking greater value, competition is increasing and there is a growing expectation that lawyers be competent users of technology. Are any additional safeguards needed to protect consumers of legal services? Legal and non-legal innovators are creating new products and platforms to deliver legal advice or information, sometimes in the complete absence of legal practitioner oversight. Are these innovative low-cost, non-legal, providers placing solicitors at a competitive disadvantage? The Great Debate will examine some of the changes that are occurring in the delivery of legal services and will address the opportunities this raises. It will also address difficult questions about whether regulatory barriers are holding back innovation, where legal practice boundaries lie and whether these boundaries need to be better enforced, redrawn or reimagined. The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG will adjudicate a battle of wits between Elizabeth Espinosa for the affirmative and Commissioner John McKenzie for the negative as their teams go head to head in the The Great Debate. Only at FLIP Conference 2019.

In this presentation, Tim considers several aspects which might be thought to be limitations on the extent of GP claims under the FW Act. They are:

Part 1 of this paper: general limits of the operation of GP claims, in: i. physical operation, as in ‘territory’; ii. the temporal limits of operation; iii. other limits of jurisdiction;

Part 2: the limits of the main elements which comprise the causes of action. This means: i. the definition of ‘adverse action’; ii. the nature of ‘complaints and inquiries’; and i. comparison between intra-employment and extra-employment definitions in the FW Act, including termination provisions; and iv. discrimination under Part 3-1 of the FW Act.
