Australian and New Zealand Bar Associations Joint Conference

23 August 2019 - 24 August 2019

About this event


For the first time ever, the Australian and New Zealand Bar Associations will join forces to present a joint conference.  The theme, entitled: “Antipodean Advocacy: Trans-Tasman Perspectives”, will explore the nuances between the two jurisdictions and discuss various areas in where we can learn from each other.

The 2019 conference program has been carefully curated by both the Australian and New Zealand Bar Associations to include topical sessions of value and interest to all practitioners. 

In addition to an excellent educational program will be arrival networking drinks, a choice of activities around Queenstown after the formal conference sessions and a gala dinner at the top of ‘Bob’s Peak’ with breath-taking panoramic views of Queenstown and the surrounding mountains.

  • 22 August: arrival, check-in
  • 23 August: conference day 1, early bird drinks, rest of night at leisure
