Janders Dean logoJanders Dean is pleased to announce that the 6th Annual APAC Legal Knowledge & Innovation Conference (Sydney, 19-20 September) is now sold out. With over 120 attendees representing dozens of the leading law firms, in-house legal teams and government bodies from across the region having already rushed to register for the event, this unique educational forum has again proved to be the most popular and valued conference on the law firm calendar in APAC.

"Having listened to our consulting clients, we found that there was a massive gap in the APAC industry with respect to conferences that had substantive content and quality speakers on a consistent annual basis," said Justin North, Director of Janders Dean and founder of the annual event.

"Various events have tried their best to address this over the years; however without real life experience in the domestic and global legal marketplace they often come up short with their understanding of the content and their speaking faculty selection."

"Given Janders Dean's positioning as leading consultants to law firms of varying shapes and sizes around the world, we have been able to translate the real life challenges and experiences of our clients into agendas that are truly educational," said North.

Feedback from delegates at prior year events strongly confirms that the Janders Dean events are valued for their up to date and relevant content, and also their international and domestic speaking faculty of thought leaders. The speaking faculty is primarily drawn from the unparalleled client base and network of family and friends that Janders Dean has access to.

The philosophy at the core of the Janders Dean events is that these are first and foremost educational sessions aimed at challenging, informing and upskilling the delegates in the areas of legal Knowledge Management, Technology, and Innovation.

With the economic climate and industry change challenges that are facing the market, senior law firm management personnel are seeking opportunities to ensure their professional support staff are up to speed on various trends, and are at the top of their game.

"If you want a junket, this isn't it," says North.

"If I'm standing in the Managing Partner's shoes and one of my team are either out of the office attending a conference, or are asking me for the firm's permission to attend an event, it had better be the very best there is - and also have a strong focus on educational content. I would want my team to come back with ideas and action plans between their ears, not sand between their toes," said North.

The content delivered during the Janders Dean conferences, and the benefits the delegates get from liaising with international and domestic peers, clearly contributes to the ongoing learning of law firm staff.


With over 25 speakers from across the APAC, UK and USA legal industries presenting 20 sessions over two days in Sydney, the 6th Annual Janders Dean Legal Knowledge & Innovation Conference continues to be the leading law firm event in the region.

The Janders Dean events also benefit from bringing delegates closer together with leading providers to the law firm market in a trusted environment that is not focused on sales. The 2013 event will see industry leading companies such as Phoenix Business Solutions, LexisNexis, Recommind, HighQ Solutions, Manzama, IntApp, OpenText, Ethan Group, Nikec, Business Integrity, Lex-Connect and many many others attend the forum to hear first hand the challenges and opportunities facing the industry.

"The role that companies such as Phoenix Business Solutions and LexisNexis play in leading and shaping their respected areas of the industry is unparalleled. For them to be available to both actively listen and learn from delegates, while also being available to contribute thought leadership at the event, is of the utmost importance to everyone" said North.

"We're also fortunate in that the valued content presented at our events ensures that we receive coverage of the event in the independent legal press via leading industry commentators such as Charles Christian and Lawyers Weekly".

"This type of coverage helps those who have not been able to attend for any reason feel like they are involved and included, and to ensure they can follow the trends being presented. Their respect and reach is also global, and we find that we then hear great things about the APAC event from our clients across other international jurisdictions," said North.

Our sincere thanks go to our loyal delegates and partnering organisations who continue to take the event from strength to strength.
