The 2022 TeLENZ Conference on Law and Technology: Education, Practice and Policy, held on the 8th September at AUT, was brimming with interesting and diverse topics and speakers and has been a wonderful success, growing substantially from the 2021 TeLENZ Sympoisum.

Andrew Butler, Law Foundation Chair opened the conference by acknowledging the critical importance of technology education in law and the work of TeLENZ. Professor Jane Kelsey then followed with the Plenary Address and provided a fascinating and thought-provoking presentation on Trade and Regulatory Paradigms for Digital Ecosystems through Development and Indigenous Lenses. The event was packed with engaging insights into the law and technology nexus with topics including NFT’s, Trust in Technology and Law Policy, Smart Crime, Teaching Law in Times of Rapid Technological Change, Jurisdiction and Online Hate Speech, Visual Contracts, the Morality of Online User Agreements, Data Sovereignty, Data and Genomics, and presentations by the TeLENZ 2022 Summer Scholars. Our experienced practitioner panellists were also on hand to provide perspectives on technology and law in practice.

We sincerely thank our exceptional array of speakers, presenters and panellists who treated us to an amazing day of content and discussion and were available to continue conversations at numerous networking opportunities throughout the event.

Our ongoing appreciation is extended to the New Zealand Law Foundation for funding the TeLENZ 2022 Conference and making this unique and important opportunity possible for the NZ law community.  Thanks also to AUT for a beautiful venue and fabulous conference support and to Lexis Nexis and Future Law for their continuing support.

Finally, to our delegates, we are immensely thankful to you for taking time out of your busy schedules to join us for the conference and we look forward to welcoming you back for another amazing event in 2023!

Conference videos will be available on the TeLENZ website in due course.
