This includes our continuing professional development courses.

Please note: QLS Council has extended the CPD year. Practitioners now have up until 30 June 2020 to complete continuing professional development (CPD). Visit the QLS Shop to access our on-demand resources.

• External access to Law Society House will be restricted to mediation facilities only.
Access will be limited to 20 participants on site at any one time. Strict hygiene protocols and social distancing measures will need to be adhered to.
