Seminar Series

In 2011 a mandatory continuing professional development scheme was introduced in South Australia.

This means that in order to be eligible to maintain a current South Australian practicing certificate each legal practitioner must complete a minimum of 10 'units' of CPD activity between 1 April and 31 March each year. Units accumulated between 1 January and 31 March can be credited to the current or following CPD year.

Of those 10 CPD units at least one unit must be in each of the following areas: ethics; practice management; and professional skills. For more information about the Mandatory Continuing Professional Development requirements see Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Rules

The Seminar Series - Adelaide Law School's Professional Development Program

With national and international legal experts in a variety of fields relevant to legal practice, the Adelaide Law School is well placed to assist legal practitioners to satisfy their CPD obligations, while also engaging them with a range of interesting, challenging and practical events. Accordingly the Law School will present a series of Seminars (worth one CPD point each) throughout 2017. A practitioner attending the entire program will fulfil all their CPD requirements for the year, including the requirement to have one point each of ethics, professional skills and practice management.

If you wish to be notified of our upcoming Seminar events, please join our community.

Practitioners can choose to attend individual events of interest or to sign up for our complete Seminar series. Practitioners who register to attend events in advance, but subsequently find they are unable to attend, are welcome to transfer their tickets to another practitioner. Discounts will be available to Adelaide Law School and GDLP students, those who register for the entire Seminar series, or to firms who register multiple practitioners to attend.

Study at Adelaide Law School

It is also possible to satisfy CPD requirements through a course of further study either in the full Master of Laws program or by taking a Single Course of Study.
