Online event with lawyers from Australia: “How technology is changing the legal profession”

General Information

Technological advancements fundamentally shape our daily lives, drastically changing how we work and interact, and have led to the creation of new professions. The impact of digital transformation has also reached the field of jurisprudence, radically altering traditional practices by introducing tools that increase efficiency and accessibility. This topic of transformational effects and their implications for lawyers—from artificial intelligence in legal research to virtual collaboration in a post-pandemic world — was discussed at the English-language online event “How Technology is Changing the Legal Profession” organized by the Department of Modern European Languages on April 23, 2024.

The meeting featured esteemed guests from the fields of commercial law, property law, and inheritance law: Angela Bradley, a lawyer at JULIANO LAWYERS, and Vincent Juliano, the head of JULIANO LAWYERS, both based in Melbourne, Australia.

The speakers provided insights into Australia’s legal system and how lawyers are interacting with new technologies, including virtual currencies, client accounts, and automated systems. They highlighted the growing role of AI in routine legal tasks and noted that despite AI’s emergence as a competitor in many professions, lawyers will continue to be essential in the future. The speakers also discussed how the pandemic and the prolonged quarantine in Melbourne — one of the longest in the world — prompted Australian lawyers to increasingly engage with technology, adapting to new economic and work realities and spearheading innovative approaches. This shift has notably led to a trend towards remote work and virtual collaboration in the legal field.

At the conclusion of this exclusive event, students had the opportunity to ask the speakers questions about global trends in the legal industry and the specifics of Australian legislation, which provided them with greater understanding of the topic and allowed them to delve deeper into current issues. They were also able to discuss the potential uses of the latest technologies in jurisprudence that could change the future of the profession.

The Department of Modern European Languages and its students express their sincere thanks to Angela Bradley and Vincent Juliano for an exceptionally interesting and substantive meeting. Your detailed overview of the impact of technology on legal practice has opened new perspectives and enriched our academic growth. We especially value the warm atmosphere and openness you brought to our communication and eagerly await further opportunities to exchange knowledge!
