Lawlink Conference

Invercargill 2019

2 - 5 May 2019

About the Conference

Each year Lawlink has an annual conference to encourage members to become better businesses, and to network with each other. One of the strengths of Lawlink is the strong bond that has developed over the years between firms, so that firms are very generous with their help and support of each other.


The 2019 Conference will be held at Bill Richardson Transport World in Invercargill from 2 to 5 May.


Why Attend?

We hope delegates will be entertained by the presenters, but the underlying message is the importance of participation to get the most out of Lawlink, the need to innovate within firms, and to motivate everyone within a firm to do their best, and plan well.

Liam Malone

Blade Runner

Soul Machines

Liam Malone is nothing short of inspiring. He made quite an impression on the world stage as a world number one in blade running, taking home two gold and a silver medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games, but this now retired athlete hasn’t stopped there.

Today his passion for technology and innovation has put him at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence development working at Auckland based tech firm Soul Machines.

Liam’s knowledge on the fascinating movements in AI, digital disruption, innovation and what it means for doing business as we know it are incredibly insightful and I know he looks forward to sharing them with you.
