Canterbury/Westland Law Dinner 2019

The 2019 Law Dinner was held at the newly re-opened Christchurch Town Hall.

150 Year Celebrations

Canterbury Westland Branch of New Zealand Law Society celebrated 150 years in October 2018.

The first meeting of the local society was held on 5 October 1868 and resolutions forming the society were passed including a motion from Mr WS Moorhouse that the foundation of the society be celebrated with a dinner. The annual dinner to celebrate the formation of the Law Society in Canterbury Westland has been held ever since including the 150 year anniversary.

The 150 year anniversary was celebrated by not only the formal dinner but also a profession photo and a gala ball.

Photos from the three events can be viewed and downloaded for copying.

All events were a huge success and hundreds of practitioners were able to come together to celebrate this momentous event.
