LawFest is New Zealand’s innovation & technology organisation dedicated to improving knowledge on, and access to, legal technology in New Zealand.

LawFest operates a membership, an annual premier legal innovation and technology event attracting over 250 people, and hosts New Zealand’s only legal technology index.

LawFest is operated by Andrew King of E-Discovery Consulting.

The annual LawFest 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 2019 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.
