Computers and Law: Journal for the Australian and New Zealand Societies for Computers and the Law
A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
The Computers & Law Journal was first published in 1983 as a joint publication of all Australian and New Zealand Societies for Computers and the Law. Many leaders from across the legal and computer science professions contributed to the Journal, including the founders of the New South Wales and Victorian Societies, Professor Graham Greenleaf and Julian Burnside.
Over the years, the content and style of the Journal has undergone a number of iterations, culminating in its relaunch with this volume. It is now a professional, academically recognised publication, contributing to important discourse on the intersection of law, policy and technology. The three tiers of content – Academic Articles, Thought Leadership Essays and Industry Reports – are a reflection of the growing diversity of AUSCL’s membership, the critical nature of the issues being discussed and the importance of learned discussion.
Offering a tiered approach, aligns with AUSCL’s mission to co-create a sustainable future, as we strongly believe that interdisciplinary and intergenerational engagement is essential for carefully considering and solving some of the most significant challenges faced by modern society.
On behalf of AUSCL and the present and future readership of this Journal, I thank Professor Natalie Stoianoff (Editor-in-Chief), Associate Professor Maria O’Sullivan (Managing Editor – Academic), Rob MacLean (Managing Editor – Industry), the Editorial Board and our publisher, AustLII, for their vision, professionalism and perseverance in bringing this project to fruition for the benefit of all.
