The Allens Hub for Technology, Law and Innovation (‘The Hub’) is a community of scholars at UNSW Sydney aiming to add breadth and depth to research on the interactions among law, legal practice and technological change in order to enrich scholarly and policy debates and enhance understanding and engagement among the legal profession, the judiciary, industry, government, civil society and the broader community. The Australian Human Rights Institute is a unique centre of knowledge in Australia and the world, for bringing together medical, engineering and legal minds to find human rights solutions.
Thank you for the opportunity to make a submission. We do so in our capacity as experts, and the views in this submission do not represent the views of UNSW Law or Allens. Due to time constraints as we were not aware of this opportunity until recently, we focus on some of the questions posed, adapting a submission prepared with colleagues on similar issues for the Australian Human Rights Commission. The authorship of those colleagues is acknowledged, but there was insufficient time to consult in relation to this separate submission.
