ALAA-ANZ Symposium 2024

Unfortunately, we regret to inform you that the event has been cancelled.


It has become clear to the organisers that the financial constraints currently affecting our members throughout Aotearoa New Zealand make hosting such an in-person event very challenging at this time. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2024 ALAA-ANZ One-Day Symposium planned for July 1st at Victoria University of Wellington | Te Herenga Waka.


However, as ALAA-ANZ is committed to offering its members events and activities that are valuable, we are planning to host some of the activities scheduled for the 2024 Symposium in an online format. We will provide more details about these plans shortly.


Moreover, we are considering the possibility of reviving the event in 2025 or beyond. We will reach out later in the year to gauge interest in these plans.


In the meantime, we will keep you informed about legal academic news in Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as other networking opportunities on our website , through LinkedIn, and via email.


We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
