Solicitors no longer need to count CPD hours. Instead you should now reflect on the quality of your practice and identify any learning and development needs. You can then address these needs to make sure your knowledge and skills are up to date and that you are competent to practice.

The new regime requires you, in summary, to:

  1. Reflect on the quality of your practice to identify your learning and development needs.
  2. Plan and address your learning and development needs.
  3. Record and evaluate your learning activity.
  4. Make an annual declaration to confirm you have completed the above.

With our Internet for Lawyers CPD 2017 competence service you can maintain a CPD plan, undertake our courses and keep compliant records.
