2017 CIBEL Annual Keynote


Breaking the Legal and Business Barriers and Shaping Global Talents in the Era of AI

UNSW Law’s China International Business and Economic Law (CIBEL) Initiative held the CIBEL Keynote Speech presented by Mr. Wang Junfeng (Global Chairman of King & Wood Mallesons).

With the popularization and application of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in the legal profession, the development pattern of the law firm will be greatly improved in the future. Legal education needs to be closely integrated with AI to further explore the interdisciplinary cultivation of “artificial intelligence + X”, and actively practice combining business and law, so as to lay a sound interdisciplinary knowledge foundation and crossover understanding for legal talent.
