CPD year ends soon!

The end of the CPD year is fast approaching and QLS is running six Core CPD sessions you won’t want to miss before the end of March.

Our sessions offer members stand-out topics and facilitators that not only contribute to your mandatory CPD points but also challenge your thinking and relationships with colleagues and clients.

Core PS: How to be a resilient lawyer

Resilience is often defined as an individual’s ability to adapt and recover from change or difficult situations. The profession is constantly adapting and changing, and your personal resilience is often tested. Our leading change expert, Robyn Bradey, will step you through practical tips and strategies to assist you and your staff to consistently perform and build resilience.

Core PS: Dealing with difficult clients and colleagues

This two-hour practical workshop will focus on managing workplace conflicts and building resilience. A compliment to the “How to be a resilient lawyer” workshop, this session will provide you with effective skills to help you resolve conflicts and support your productivity, creativity and increase profit. A must for any lawyer at any stage of their career.

Core PM&BS: An essential guide to profitability

Small business or large, building and maintaining profitability is crucial. This lunchtime livecast session will give you top tips, plus your core practice management and business skill CPD point.

Core PLE: Confidentiality and its exceptions

When can a solicitor, if ever, reveal a client’s confidential information? Join our ethics team from the comfort of your desk and gain the confidence to maintain confidentiality for a client and to know when, if needed, to reveal information.

Core (all): Illumination of bias

What better way to attain a mandatory CPD point than through a workshop delivered through the power of movies? Join our award-winning international presenters for a half-day workshop as they take you on an entertaining journey exploring the harm/potential risk of implicit bias.
