Accreditation in Australia
Our reading of the compulsory continuing professional development (CPD) rules for all QLD, NSW, ACT, SA, TAS & VIC Bar Associations and Law Societies is that our conferences attract one CPD point per hour of conference session attendance. We are also an approved QA Provider for the WA Legal Practice Board therefore all conferences attract points for WA solicitors and barristers.
Please be aware not all conference sessions attract points and most associations and societies limit the amount of points claimable per conference. The HK Law Society approves our conferences on a case by case basis which gives lawyers from many parts of the USA continuing education points via reciprocal arrangements.
Academic content in the past has included topics on medico-legal issues, ethics, contract law, criminal law, family law, administrative law, personal injury, mediation, intellectual property, and more. Depending on the conference, Australian barristers and solicitors may claim all or part of their mandatory CPD points for the registration period in areas such as ethics, advocacy and practice management and skills. Substantive law points are always available as our speakers share updates and new developments in law and practice across a broad range of areas and specialisations.
