Law & Order: Technology on Trial


Saturday 2:15pm, Library Theatre

It’s a hypothetical courtroom where technology is put on trial and the audience is the jury. Every day a new story seems to break about data breaches, privacy concerns or robots putting people out of work. A panel of WA’s lawyers debate two cases nominated by the public, selected from the current media. Using an interactive tool, the audience will decide whether data breaches can actually benefit our society.

This event is AUSLAN interpreted.

Presented in collaboration with University of Western Australia Law School.
