Shape dynamics is a reframing of canonical general relativity in which time reparametrization invariance is 'traded' for a local conformal invariance. We explore the emergence of Lorentz invariance in this model in three contexts: as a maximal symmetry, an asymptotic symmetry and a local invariance.
