Online Learning
Online learning is a flexible and easily accessible way to gain your CPD points in the compulsory core areas of Professional Skills, Practical Legal Ethics, and Practice Management and Business Skills. You can claim one CPD point for each hour of online learning.

Practitioners are required to complete a minimum of 10 CPD points each year to maintain their practising certificate, stay up to date with legislative changes and the evolution of the ‘business of law’ in their practices . Queensland Law Society offers opportunities to help practitioners gain their CPD points such as:

  • attending seminars and conferences
  • preparing for presenting at seminars/conferences
  • viewing of real time DVDs of conferences/seminars
  • publishing articles in law journals and other legal publications such as Proctor
  • becoming a member of a Queensland Law Society (QLS) section or committee
  • access the CPD Information Booklet that explains CPD requirements, how to track your CPD activities and the annual audit process.
