Information about the 2017 Conference

The NZ Christian Lawyers Conference will be held at Manukau City Baptist Church (Auckland) on Saturday 20 May 2017.

The purpose of the conference is to inspire and encourage Christian lawyers to consider their vocation as lawyers and what it means to practice law as followers of Christ. The conference provides a wonderful opportunity for Christian lawyers to gather from across New Zealand for fellowship, inspiration, encouragement, and networking.

Our key-note speaker for the conference is Alistair MacKenzie, along with 12 workshop presenters. Further information about the presenters can be found on the home page for this website (Menu – Presenters at the 2017 Conference).

We are excited to announce that Venn Foundation is supporting this conference (for more information about Venn Foundation, click here: Venn Foundation

  • Law & policy.
