As a legal practitioner, keeping your knowledge and skills up to date is critical to your success. QLS’s professional development education can assist you with career development, specialist accreditation, managing a legal practice, or earning your required Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

Each year you are required to earn 10 (15 for Accredited Specialists) CPD points. Your choice in CPD programs and program providers is vital. For leading legal professionals, the choice is not just about the dollars per CPD point; it’s about the quality of content, delivery and accessibility.
