Annual CBA Conference - Auckland, 3-4 August 2019

It's that time again!  Conference registrations ARE OPEN.

This year's Criminal Bar Association Conference will be in Auckland over the weekend of 3-4 August 2019. The conference sessions will be held at the University of Auckland School of Business, and the conference dinner will be held at the Cordis Hotel (previously the Langham) on Symonds Street.  Attendance at the full conference fulfils 10 CPD hours - the full annual requirement.

We are in the process of finalising our speakers but are delighted to announce our new Chief Justice, Her Honour Justice Helen Winkelmann as our keynote speaker.

As always other speakers will cover an interesting range of practical criminal law topics, including evidence, legal updates, forensic issues, and will include a dialogue with the judges of the Court of Appeal and High Court.  We aim to publish the full lineup shortly.  The conference involves great food and drink, outstanding professional development and wonderful collegiality.

We have kept our prices the same as last year - we continue to believe this is hands down the best value for money conference you can get.

Some scholarships are available for attendance at the conference - please email with your details if you would like to apply for assistance.

We also offer discounted attendances for student CBA members - please contact for more details.

Because the conference is discounted for CBA members, please ensure you sign up or renew your membership before you register for the conference.  Click here to sign up or renew.
