SA Chief Justice Chris Kourakis talked about law and technology challenges, at a Law Week event hosted by Tindall Gask Bentley on May 22, 2013.
The Chief Justice’s speech focussed specifically on the inability of the South Australian courts system to keep up with technology, especially when compared with the Commonwealth and other countries.
“The courts’ criminal computer system (software) was written in 1989 and the civil litigation system in 1996, which was about the time Google was launched,” he said.
The Advertiser reported on the speech. Read the story here.
TGB Managing Partner Morry Bailes backed Chief Justice Kourakis’ views in a story for ABC News here.
Attendees at the event included Judge Rauf Soulio, Magistrate Bob Harrap, Attorney-General John Rau MP, Deputy Leader of the Opposition Vicky Chapman MP, the Deans of South Australia’s three law schools Professor John Williams (Adelaide), Professor Kim Economidies (Flinders), Professor Peter MacFarlane (Uni SA) and law students, as well as guests of Tindall Gask Bentley’s lawyers.
