The designers of LawFest

This year we established an Advisory Panel for LawFest consisting of leading legal and technology professionals. This is a first for us and we believe it’ll ensure the development of an engaging and enjoyable programme.

The panel has an excellent cross section of expertise, helping us to deliver a programme focused on how technology and innovation can drive efficiency in your practice and ensure the day is valuable for all delegates.

The advisory panel includes –

  • Warren Dunn | Partner | EY
  • Andrew King | LawFest Organiser and Founder & Strategic Advisor | E-Discovery Consulting
  • Judge David Harvey | Director | NZ Centre for ICT Law
  • Laura O’Gorman | Partner | Buddle Findlay
  • Susan Bennett | Principal | Sibenco Legal & Advisory and Co-founder & Director | Information Governance ANZ
  • Craig Columbus | CIO | Russell McVeagh
  • Jarrod Coburn | CEO | Ebborn Law

You can check out the profiles of the LawFest Advisory Panel here.

The panel is meeting on a weekly basis, with the speakers starting to be rolled out over coming weeks. The final programme and speakers will be announced at an exclusive launch event in Auckland on the 9th of February 2017.

The panel are devising a multi-stream programme providing something for every level including a basic ‘getting started’ subject stream through to innovation streams talking about artificial intelligence, machine learning, social media, cyber security, privacy, and automation.

The event will deliver a platform for legal professionals to discover technology and develop a greater understanding of how technology and innovation can impact them, their firms and their clients, and with the programme packed full of practical advice, eye-opening presentations, and success stories from your peers.

The expanded programme will include new topics and speakers, which promise to be stimulating and thought-provoking, including legal technology experts, practitioners and leading innovation thought leaders from New Zealand and abroad.

New Zealand’s premier legal innovation and technology event guarantees to engage and inspire you so don’t miss out on the early bird tickets here or contact Andrew by email if you’re interested in exhibiting or sponsoring a session at LawFest 2017.
