Bespoke Ethics Sessions
Our solicitors are available to present Bespoke Ethics Sessions to firms, in-house, pro bono and government. These sessions count towards your CPD requirements and are provided for a fee. Sessions can also be designed specifically for your firm, practice area or a specific audience. If you are a member firm, the cost for a 1 hour session is $550 + GST while the cost for a non-member firm is $715 + GST. If you are a firm with 5 practitioners or less, a “micro firm” rate applies.
A précis of possible topics can be found here. However with appropriate notice, the Centre can tailor the session to your specific needs / audience.
For further information please contact the QLS Ethics and Practice Centre.
