On 31 May 2022, CUHK LAW hosted the LegalTech Forum to address the main promises and perils accompanying the adoption of legal technologies. In his keynote speech, Professor Dan Hunter, Dean of Law at Queensland University of Technology, explained how artificial intelligence, data analytics, and other digital technologies had fundamentally changed legal practices and the consequent challenges faced by the legal profession and the society. Following Professor Hunter’s presentation, Mr. Danny Kan (Ping An Group) and Professor Eliza Mik (CUHK LAW) discussed various issues pertaining to the impact of digital technologies on the practice of law, legal market, and legal education.
The CUHK LAW LegalTech Forum also served as the launch event for the Center for Legal Innovation and Digital Society (CLINDS), formerly known as the Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development (CFRED). CFRED had changed the direction of its activities towards research projects related to law and technology since 2017. CFRED has now been re-organized as CLINDS to better reflect its new focus and CUHK LAW’s strength in law and technology.
