World Legal Summit Sydney

1 August 2019
9:00am - 3:15pm
Allens, 126 Phillip Street Sydney NSW 2000
This event has ended

This event will take place during business hours in Sydney, but link to similar events around the world.

This first part of the WLS is designed to bring disparate jurisdictions together in collaboration around building a better understanding of what is happening with technology regulation and governance world-wide. Sydney will bring a unique viewpoint to the discussion, focusing on the legislative and governance structures in the city and more broadly across Australia.

While there will be panels on each topic, the goal will be to facilitate local conversations that will link with the broader international conversation, identifying common themes and regional differences. The result will be a report that explores existing legal frameworks and law reform ideas for emerging technologies around the world. Participants are welcome to join for one or more sessions of interest, or stay for the full day.

Collaborate with us and the global community to further the understanding of legislative and regulatory frameworks. These frameworks are enabling the sustainable development of emerging technologies and your input is important!

The morning will focus on three themes:

  • 9:30am-10:30am   Panel Discussion One: Identity & Governance: Regulation of the construction and use of digital identities, including on blockchain
  • 10:30am-11:30am   Panel Discussion Two: Autonomous Machines: Autonomous transportation – changing rules for self-driving cars
  • 11:40am-12:40pm  Panel Discussion Three: Cyber Security & Personal Data:  Legal frameworks to enhance cyber security and protect personal information

The afternoon will focus on:

  • 1.30pm – 3.10pm Regulation for artificial intelligence applications in the legal profession
