LawFest – A look back at New Zealand’s premier legal innovation and technology event

June 29th, 2017

It has been a busy last few months. On the 17th of May I ran LawFest, where over 200 people from law firms, in-house legal teams and the technology industry joined some of New Zealand’s leading legal technology thinkers at the Langham in Auckland.

It was great to see the amount of energy and interest in legal innovation and technology in this country.

New Zealand’s premier legal innovation and technology event was engaging and innovative, providing great practical advice that everyone could learn from. The programme asked questions that challenged delegates, with industry leading speakers providing insight into how to take advantage of the opportunities that technology brings.

LawFest was much more than the great topics and speakers. The event delivered the largest ever gathering of exhibitors at a New Zealand legal event. Technology providers showcased their new and exciting solutions for the legal market, as well as having the opportunity to meet with other providers under the one roof – which can be rare.

We have also put all the photos together from the day. You can check out the gallery here.
