The 2022 CPD Intensive Series:
Your one-stop-shop to grow your professional knowledge

The CPD Intensive Series is your one-stop-shop to grow your professional knowledge! Our annual two-day conference is designed so you can earn your CPD requirements in a single hit. Members can also choose to carry over up to three excess CPD units from this seminar series into the next CPD year.

We will have a range of expert speakers presenting on topical legal issues, as well as interactive panel sessions. Seminars include: 

  • Deciphering legislation: Former Deputy Parliamentary Counsel David Metcalf will give an insider’s view of the dark art of drafting
  • Cybersecurity: Cyber attacks are now a matter of 'when', not 'if', and Annie Haggar, Technology, Media and Telecommunications Lawyer of the Year, will help you get your firm ‘cybersecurity-ready’
  • Kindness in the law: Hear from lawyers making kindness the key to improving not only the client experience but also their own well-being and happiness
  • Switching career paths: Stories, tips, and advice from lawyers who've moved between government, private, and in-house practice

Plus in-depth seminars on boosting your success through innovation, managing your wellbeing, and the fine art of future-proofing your firm.

Registrations opening soon! Full Schedule will be available shortly.
