ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand


Conference 2020

33rd Annual ILANZ Conference & ICW World Summit 2020

2020 ILANZ Conference Logo3The theme for the 2020 conference is ‘Navigating Uncertainty’. Business and risk environments are becoming increasingly more complex – from disruption and compliance to cyber risk and geopolitical tensions; in-house lawyers must adapt in order to navigate the choppy waters on uncertainty. 


This year ILANZ will also host the In-house Counsel Worldwide (ICW) World Summit. This summit will run in conjunction with our annual conference. ILANZ is proud to be hosting the summit and is excited to welcome the international delegation.


This conference provides the opportunity to canvass a wide range of issues relevant to in-house lawyers – legal, practice management and soft skills sessions – in the understanding that uncertainty is the “new normal”.

Join us on 21 & 22 May 2020 at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington when we will explore different aspects of in-house practice.
