What is LawFest?

LawFest is a legal technology and innovation conference, but it's not just ‘another conference’ – it’s the one event legal professionals should attend every year. 

Our multi-stream programme has been designed for those in the legal industry at any level. There’s something for everyone including those new to legal technology, through to those currently leading the way and are at the forefront of legal innovation.

LawFest provides a platform for legal professionals to discover technology and develop a greater understanding of how technology and innovation can impact them, their organisations and their clients, and with the programme packed full of practical advice, eye-opening presentations, and success stories from your peers, this premier legal innovation and technology event guarantees to engage and inspire you.

LawFest is the opportunity to learn, connect with innovators in the legal industry, establish relationships, and discover technology that matters to you and your business.

  • Best conference I have been to in years. Ticked all the boxes in terms of excellent content, great networking opportunities and very well organised.

  • LawFest 2017 was a great opportunity to network – meeting both like-minded people in other organisations – and getting validation for your crazy ideas at work – or meeting people who challenged your ideas of Legal Tech. These opportunities are so rare and so useful.

  • LawFest made me excited about the future of the legal profession.

  • A fantastic event – highlighted a lot of issues in the legal profession and how things can change.
