CPD competence courses for lawyers for 2016

The Internet for Lawyers series of online CPD and continuing competence courses is prepared by Nick Holmes and Delia Venables and published here on infolaw. Each year we produce three new, topical and up-to-date courses. One for solicitors only and two more for both barristers and solicitors.

Each course contains 10 or more practical articles written by Nick and Delia and many other leading experts in their fields, covering all aspects of legal practice affected by the internet.

Read the courses on screen (PDF), with live web links, or print off for armchair reading. Then complete an online questionnaire at the end to evidence the knowledge you have gained and certify for CPD purposes.
