Winners of the New South Wales Bar Association/SULS 2022 Law Students’ Blog Competition


Last year, the New South Wales Bar Association’s Media and Information Law and Technology (MILT) Committee partnered with the Sydney University Law Society (SULS) to jointly host the second intervarsity Law Students’ Blog Competition. Building on the success of the inaugural competition in 2020, the 2022 Competition asked students to work in small teams to compose a blog post responding to the question: ‘Could an artificially intelligent device practise as a barrister in New South Wales?’

A virtual awards ceremony was held on 8 December 2022 to announce the winners of the Competition. The judging panel were impressed by the high standard of entries, each of which demonstrated originality and creativity in engagement and analysis.
