ILANZ Conference 2018

No8 Wire 1331st Annual ILANZ Conference

Our theme for 2018 is ‘No. 8 Wire’ in which we will reflect on the nature of the role of in-house counsel today: improvising and adapting limited resources to produce innovative solutions.

The conference will aim to leave you both energised and challenged, with fresh ideas of practical ways to make a difference in your organisation.

Join us on 17 & 18 May 2018 at Claudelands in Hamilton when we will explore different aspects of in-house practice.
