Continual Professional Education

CPE Conferences’ success as a quality CPD provider is not based on a formula, but an exciting kaleidoscope of internationally crafted exclusive academic and social programs perfected over the last 24 years by a team of professionals, for professionals.

With a broad and comprehensive academic program delivered by speakers that are innovative leaders in the fields of Law, Medicine, Business and Technology. Our commitment to members is in delivering high-end experiences whilst engaging in the development of professional skills and knowledge, in order to remain professionally competent and achieve true potential.

 


CPD for Legal, Medical & Dental Professionals. 

As with most conferences, all sessions are conducted by practitioners and leading academics. However, our program structure is unique to CPE Conferences. Over the last 20 years we have adopted a model that allows us to accommodate local and VIP speakers whom, due to professional demands were unable to confirm their availability, would otherwise be unable to share their international perspective.

The ability to introduce international speakers at short notice or visits external institutions that could not have confirmed prior to welcome drinks has been a highlight of CPE Conferences’ programs. We must sometimes readdress a conference agenda’s schedule in order to cater for a speaker or event, even at the last minute. For this reason the program will remain provisional and will not be published until the welcome drinks event held on the first day of the conference. For an indication of what to expect on the agenda please view copies of our past programs.


Migration Law CPD

From 19 November 2017, all lawyers in Australia will be able to undertake work in migration law including dealing with all aspects of visas such as visa applications, visa cancellations, appeals to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and anything to do with employers and engaging overseas staff.

These workshops are conducted by Lorenzo Boccabella, Barrister-at-law and migration specialist. You will receive 10 legal CPD points in three areas – Substantial law, Professional Skills and Ethics.

It is a whole new field of law and potentially a new set of clients. However it is not an area one can easily parachute into. Topics include

  • The visa system
  • Employer sponsorship
  • Specific visas such as partner visas, skilled visas and work visas
  • Compliance issues with Immigration
  • Merit review to the Administrative Appeals
  • Judicial review in the federal court system plus appeals to the High Court
  • All topics earn CPD points in substantive law.
