Law Apps

What is Law Apps?

Law Apps is an innovative clinic where students design, build and release a live legal expert system that can provide legal information to non-lawyers.

Legal expert systems (law apps) are applications that replicate the thought processes and actions of a lawyer in connection with a specific legal question. Law apps are a new and growing part of the legal landscape. Lawyers in Australia and overseas are using them to provide fast, accurate and cost-effective answers to common legal problems.

In collaboration with a not-for-profit organisation partner, students identify suitable common legal problems that can be answered through a series of structured questions. Students visit the organisations and meet with key staff to gain a thorough understanding of the relevant needs and concerns of clients and the wider non-lawyer public.


Law Apps offers students a unique opportunity to explore and apply the potential of artificial intelligence to provide practical solutions to common legal problems. It enables students to build on and develop their skills in legal analysis, creativity, problem solving and innovation. Law Apps allows students to contribute to the not-for-profit sector and assist organisations to address the concerns of their clients and the broader community.
