WASCAL provides a venue for the study and discussion of the inter-relationship between computer technology and all aspects of the law.

The society was formed in 1982, and its members include lawyers, computer professionals, patent attorneys and other interested persons.

Regular meetings provide an opportunity for members and guests to discuss and exchange ideas on this important inter-disciplinary area.

Talks, discussions, workshops and seminars are held on matters of specific interest by the society. Topics have included:

Electronic mail
The legal office of the future
Copyright protection of computer software
Computer-related contracts
Computerised legal information retrieval
Computerised litigation support
Introduction to computers for lawyers

These seminars play an important role in educating both lawyers and computer professionals in the many and varied areas where their disciplines and interests overlap.

The society has been involved in surveys of the legal profession to determine the extent of use of computer technology; for instance, in the word and data processing equipment installed in legal offices.

Contact is maintained with similar societies in other Australian States, and contributions are made to a national newsletter on related topics. Members also receive exclusive access to Internet resources including discussion fora and an exclusive members-only area of the Web site (lost your password?).
