Information Governance ANZ Events

LawFest - New Zealand's Premier Legal Innovation & Technology Event

On 8 March 2018, over 200 delegates from law firms, corporate organisations and government departments will be attending New Zealand's premier legal innovation and technology event - LawFest.

LawFest is the one event legal professionals should attend every year, providing an opportunity for anyone involved in the intersection of technology and the law to develop their knowledge and immerse themselves in the latest topics and trends in this fast-changing area.

The one-day conference provides a platform for legal professionals to learn about how they can innovate and adopt technology into their practice. There will be the opportunity to learn, connect with innovators in the legal industry, establish relationships, and discover technology that matters to you and your business.

The programme is packed full of practical advice, eye-opening presentations, and success stories from your peers. New interactive workshops are included to compliment the keynotes, providing the opportunity to discuss and get deeper into topics of interest. The keynotes and workshops are tailored to the needs of lawyers, in-house counsel, practice managers, CEOs, IT professionals and everyone in between. The full line-up of speakers will be announced at the upcoming launch event on 1 November.

LawFest continues to be the only event in New Zealand providing the opportunity to meet leading legal technology providers to see their products and services that can help you practice law more efficiently, today and into the future.

If you are interested in innovation and technology to drive efficiency in your organisation, then LawFest is the event for you.
