Centre for Legal Innovation
Introducing the Centre for Legal Innovation at the College of Law
Created by The College of Law in 2016, to act as an innovation-focused think tank, the Centre for Legal Innovation (CLI) provides a platform through leadership, practical research and opportunities for collaboration in the legal profession. Its focus is to support legal professionals as they navigate the disruption and new technologies transforming the industry.
Stay informed about innovation in legal practice
The Centre will be guided by input from industry experts across legal tertiary education technology and innovation fields. The CLI's purpose is to:
- act as an incubator for research, discourse and discussion on the impact and practical application of the changes taking place in the legal industry,
- support the development of new, innovative short courses and programs to support legal professionals to capitalise on the opportunities created by these changes.
The Centre will have an emphasis on a practical rather than a theoretical approach, in developing the programs, to ensure that practitioners are able to immediately apply these skills.
“We are immensely pleased to have Terri in this important new position. The College is at an exciting stage of development and growth. We see the Centre playing an important role in ensuring we remain in tune with the needs of the profession as it continues to evolve.“
