Biography

Since graduating in 1990, I’ve been a lawyer, legal entrepreneur, lobbyist, and policy adviser. Now, I’m an academic. As Entrepreneurial Fellow at the ANU College of Law, I research and teach in the areas of blockchain, smart contracts, and the impact of technology on law and legal practice. My work is funded through Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative. I call my research the Lex Automagica Project. It asks whether and how blockchain, smart contracts, and AI can benefit society by automating legal relationships. In conjunction with some very smart programmers, I pick an area of legal friction and see if we can use technology to solve it.
