In our digital economy, personal data holds immense value for various legitimate – and illegitimate – reasons. However, the acquisition of data isn’t solely about personal privacy; consumer protection is also a key legal issue.

Dark patterns are strategies used in websites and apps to nudge users into unintended actions like surrendering personal data. In Australia, there’s a notable gap between tightly regulated conduct and actions that might appear unfair to consumers. In comparable jurisdictions, this gap is sometimes filled by a flexible unfair trading practices framework.

Shaun Temby joins David Turner in Curiosity to unmask the dark patterns and unfair tricks used against Australian consumers and what can be done to stop them.

Traditionally, in-house counsel have operated as the final gatekeepers of new products or services, brought in at the end of a development cycle to give the stamp of approval – this approach has sometimes led to the perception of legal as the “Department of No”.

Increasingly however, legal departments are working hand-in-glove with the rest of the business, from an early stage of the cycle of product development.

Strategising, planning, and enabling new products or services.

This new way of working presents new challenges and different issues for practitioners, especially maintaining the balance in their responsibility to the court and the administration of justice as a whole and their responsibility to their clients.

The traditional adversarial theory of the role of a lawyer doesn’t account for other interests that the client may have – such as preservation of existing relationships, or the broader impact of the client’s actions through their lawyer as agent.

Steve Mark AM, the inaugural New South Wales Legal Services Commissioner, joins David in Curiosity to posit the question of whether we need to rethink our duty to our clients. Touching on lawyers as gladiators vs problem solvers, positions vs interests in negotiation, and how not to massacre Fisher's orange.
