About

The LawFest conference is about focusing further on how the legal profession can innovate through leveraging technology, both today and into the future.

LawFest is organised by Andrew King of E-Discovery Consulting, building on the success of the past five annual conferences, with the 2017 event attracting over 200 participants.

The event continues to be expanded to appeal to a wider audience of legal professionals with an interest in innovating the delivery of their legal services through technology. LawFest provides the opportunity for anyone involved in the intersection of technology and the law to develop their knowledge in this fast changing area – tailored to lawyers, CEOs, CIOs, practice managers, IT professionals and government agencies.

The LawFest programme is handcrafted by an advisory panel of leading legal professionals. The schedule will include keynotes, panel discussions and practical advice around the topic of ‘law meets technology’ and its relevance to the day-to-day practice, as well as networking sessions and software demonstrations.

LawFest 2018 promises to provide delegates with the opportunity to learn more about innovative practices and drive greater efficiency within their organisation, and ultimately drive profitability. We greatly appreciate the support of all of our sponsors and partners that help to make LawFest possible.
