Lane Neave LawTech Bootcamp
As the digital world continues to evolve, technology plays an increasingly central role in how customers do business and how law firms deliver their services. Technology can make legal advice and services more accessible, quicker, and cheaper. It is now more important than ever for law firms to meet the market through the smart use of technology. Online tools already exist to undertake legal research, generate to wills and trust documents, and to complete property conveyancing. So, when law and technology converge, what’s next for the legal profession?
The Lane Neave LawTech Bootcamp is an opportunity to break new ground and solve some of the big challenges facing the legal sector. Run as a two and a half day bootcamp, the event will call on your critical thinking and creativity skills to realise the potential technology can play in the customer experience for clients using legal services and efficient delivery of legal services. You can bring your own idea or join others over the weekend to create and develop new opportunities.
By participating in this Bootcamp, you will gain hands on practical experience, learn about a tech-driven law firm, develop new and exciting solutions, apply your legal, business and/or tech knowledge to an operating law firm. All while being a part of the future of the legal practice as it embraces emerging technology. Plus, there is a $3,000 cash prize pool!

What can I expect?
The Lane Neave LawTech Bootcamp is run in a similar format as our earlier bootcamp, running over two and a half days where you will go from concept to solution over the course of the weekend. What’s different is Lane Neave will provide a few challenges to get you started and create focus for your team. And unlike our previous bootcamps, this event will be hosted at Lane Neave's new state-of-the-art Christchurch offices on Cambridge Terrace.
