More than 40 undergraduate and postgraduate students from the University of Canterbury will join legal experts at Lane Neave from 11 to 13 August to create technology-based solutions to modern challenges in the legal sector.

“The legal sector has not always been the fastest industry to embrace rapid changes in technology and Lane Neave is keen to explore the latest innovations for our business and the wider sector,” says Lane Neave Chief Executive Officer, Peter Dwan.

The "Bootcamp" is a joint venture between the law firm and the University of Canterbury and will provide an opportunity for the students, from several disciplines, to work alongside experienced professionals and their clients.

“The prospect of providing tangible and valuable solutions that realise the potential that technology can have to efficiently deliver legal services and improve the customer experience for clients is incredibly exciting for our students,” says the Incubator Manager of the University of Canterbury’s Centre for Entrepreneurship, Michelle Panzer.
