Continuing Professional Development

The Law Association CPD Committee helps to support the learning and development needs of the profession. It helps advise on, and guide the content and quality of The Law Associations’ CPD programme. The committee is comprised of practitioners from various legal practice areas and supported by members of the judiciary and is committed to maintaining professional standards and promoting "best practice".

Committee members meet each month to evaluate topics for our extensive programme of conferences, seminars, webinars, and workshops. Committee members also play an active role on planning subcommittees.

The Committee is committed to ensuring The Law Association CPD programme continues to deliver high-quality education on a diverse range of topics that are always relevant, conveniently accessible and tailored to meet the changing needs of the profession.
