Automated Decision Making and Administrative Law


Please download the 3 pieces of supporting documentation from here.

Interact with an expert panel, discussing whether the Australian Law Reform Commission should inquire into the regulation of automated decision making.

In 2019, the ALRC undertook research and broad public consultation, asking: What are the most pressing areas for law reform in Australia today? In December, the ALRC published its report, “The Future of Law Reform: A Suggested Program of Work 2020-25”. This webinar is part of a series to gain feedback and further input on some of the ALRC’s suggested future law reform inquiry topics.

Join an expert panel comprising thought leaders on automated decision making and administrative law addressing questions such as: Should administrative law reform be a priority in light of increasing automation in decision making by government agencies? What are the particular problems that any future law reform inquiry should seek to solve? What benefits might be expected from reform?

Webinar Learning Outcomes:
• Find out the latest developments in automated decision making research and practice.
• Understand contemporary thinking on the various challenges facing administrative law in light of automated decision making.
• Hear ideas about aspects of the law that might most benefit from a reform inquiry, to best facilitate and regulate automation in governmental decision making.
