In this episode no. 15, I speak with namely Andrew Wight and Kath Manby of Adieu Legal, two people doing amazing work to make law better for people with family law disputes.
Andrew is an entrepreneur and multi-award-winning designer; CEO and co-founder of Adieu Legal, a Legal Tech start-up focused on creating better ways for humans to resolve conflict. Kath is a family lawyer with a single-minded passion for access-to-justice and as Legal Principal at Adieu Legal, exploring new ways to use technology to connect more people with good legal advice and keep them out of court.
Do you know what actually stops people from seeking legal advice? You might be surprised.
We explore issues with Australia’s family law system and how disputes and the growing epidemic of domestic violence could be reduced through ways other than court orders and the role of Adieu Legal’s sophisticated and very useful solution in all of this.
If you are interested in how human centred design helps identify people’s actual problems and leads to effective solutions, especially in the context of family law; or more generally, interested in legal tech and entrepreneurship to solve social problems and especially how clients can benefit from lawyers doing things differently and working in multidisciplinary teams – you will take a lot from this conversation with Kath and Andrew.
