LEGAL ACCREDITATION IN AUSTRALIA
Where there is a compulsory continuing professional development (CPD) program in an Australian state, CPE’s conferences qualify for points through self-accreditation schemes or direct application (when required).
Our conferences can assist you in meeting your CPD requirements for the purpose of renewing your practising certificate. CPE Conferences’ delegates have claimed points with the following associations and societies:
- Law Society of ACT
- ACT Bar
- Law Society of NSW
- NSW Bar
- Law Society Northern Territory
- Queensland Law Society
- QLD Bar
- The Law Society of South Australia
- SA Bar
- The Law Society of Tasmania
- Law Institute of Victoria
- VIC Bar
- WA Legal Practice Board (We are an approved QA Provider under “Continuing Professional Education Pty Ltd”)
Australian legal professionals are required to complete at least 10 CPD points over the course of an annual registration period. Across the board, one hour of delegate participation at an academic conference equates to one CPD point/unit with any Australian legal association or society. With many associations, speaking at a conference increases the number of points per hour of participation. We encourage all delegates and speakers to familiarise themselves with the requirements of their individual association or society.
LEGAL ACCREDITATION OVERSEAS
The HK Law Society have approved our application for accreditation in the past, giving lawyers from many parts of the USA continuing education points via reciprocal arrangements.
