LawtechUK appoints five board members

LawtechUK, a government-backed initiative within Tech Nation, has chosen five new members to join its advisory board.

The LawtechUK panel was established to help transform the country's legal sector through technology. Established in 2018 by the secretary of state for justice, the group of leaders and experts from the public and private sectors acts as the advisory board to LawtechUK.

It will provide insights, challenge and support for the work of LawtechUK, and bring extensive experience in technology, academia, entrepreneurship, law and business to bolster policy recommendations for the changing role of technology in the legal sector.

The five new board members to join the Lawtech UK panel are:

- Katie Atkinson, dean of electrical engineering, electronics and computer science and professor of computer science at the University of Liverpool.

-Chris Grant, LawTech director at Barclays Ventures.

-Sarah Green, law commissioner for commercial and common law at the Law Commission of England and Wales.

-Brian Liu, chief executive of BizCounsel and co-founder of LegalZoom.

-Julia Salasky, founder of LawTech firms Legl and CrowdJustice.

After a public call out over the summer, LawtechUK received a large number of applications from across the UK legal sector and internationally.

Jenifer Swallow, director of LawtechUK at Tech Nation, said: “The volume and quality of applications for panel membership was exceptional, and reflective of the breadth of talented people recognising the need for change in the legal sector and committed to delivering that for society and the economy.”
