This paper is the first from the Regulating Automated Legal Advice Technologies (RALAT) project
supported by the University of Melbourne’s Networked Society Institute.
The project focuses on a cutting-edge development in legal technology: the automation of legal advice.
It seeks to understand the practice settings in which Automated Legal Advice Tools (ALATs) are being
adopted, issues regarding their effective management. It also explores the legal, regulatory, and ethical
risks and consequences, and how these will shape access to delivery of legal services.
