ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand


ILANZ Conference 2022

Update: Due to the current COVID-19 projections and settings, the ILANZ Committee has decided to postpone the 34th annual ILANZ Conference to Wednesday 5 & Thursday 6 October 2022. All key details remain the same, but given this postponement the programme may be refreshed to ensure all content is up-to-date and of topical interest to our attendees. 


Registrations are open now for the 34th ILANZ Conference held in Christchurch on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 October at the brand new Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre. 


Our conference theme for 2022 is ‘Whakapuāwai - Flourish’.

Over the past few years we have all had to quickly adapt to an evolving environment and this has presented a lot of professional and personal challenges and reshaped our priorities, and we don’t often think about how we can be our best selves. We want this kaupapa to support our members to flourish and thrive at work and in life.

This conference provides the opportunity to canvass a wide range of issues relevant to in-house lawyers – from legal to practice management and soft skills sessions.

All conference registrations include attendance to all social functions, including the Tuesday Night Welcome, Wednesday Social Function, and Thursday Gala Dinner and ILANZ Awards Ceremony.
