Lawyer-turned-entrepreneur connects with students over coffee

A new UQ Law School initiative, Coffee Conversations, provides an informal opportunity for students to connect with an array of legal professionals who have had interesting lives and careers. At our first event in March, we invited UQ alumnus and founder of Hyra iQ, Alastair Blenkin, to share his career story so far.

Study law. Get law degree. Work as a lawyer in a law firm. Right? Not necessarily.

New ideas and technologies are opening up new ways of practising law. Embracing digital disruption in the legal professional has been a key driver for Alastair Blenkin, the founder of Hyra iQ, a tech startup and digital platform that automates high volume contract negotiation using artificial intelligence.
