Plan Ahead To Get The Most Out Of Your CPD Programs

Every year in March, there is a mad scramble to finalise CPD points for the year before the deadline. Statistics show that nearly 50% of lawyers leave their CPD compliance to the last minute.

By planning ahead for your CPD programs, not only will you avoid the last-minute rush, but you can benefit by picking programmes that are well suited to your areas of expertise, making them more worthwhile.

Keep reading for some tips on how to get the most out of CPD programs in the future.

Get A Grip On New CPD Rules

Over the past two years, significant updates have been made to the rules governing CPD.  Requirements differ by state, so it is vital that you know what the requirements are in your location.

Discover New Focal Points

Take some time to note any especially challenging events over the past year or any specific areas of interest that you find yourself veering towards. These could all be indicators of some new fields that could open up to your practice if you had the relevant knowledge. These areas of interest could be turned into areas of expertise with the right inputs, which can help your professional and personal growth.

Keeping Up With The Times

In addition to legal skills, future lawyers need to master a variety of other skills to keep them up to date with the latest advances. Skills like online ethics, reducing exposure to cyber risks, how to work effectively by remote, mental health and well-being and effective communication and leadership skills for the future will all be vital.

Do Your Homework

When selecting your service provider for CPD programs, be sure to take the time to check out their credentials. A considerable amount of time and money is spent on CPD programs every year, and you want to make sure that you have selected the top experts in their field.
