The Law Society is seeking individuals interested in delivering a CPD seminar

The Law Society of Newfoundland and Labrador is seeking expressions of interest from members who are interested in delivering a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminar. This is an excellent opportunity for legal professionals to share their expertise, contribute to the professional development of their peers, and enhance the knowledge and skills within our legal community. Furthermore, legal writing and teaching are eligible CPD activities and members may claim up to 6 hours per year for each.

We invite all interested members, who are experienced in a particular area of law and possess strong presentation skills, to submit their proposals for consideration. CPD seminars are intended to provide practical and relevant educational content that align with the needs and interests of our diverse membership. We encourage proposals on a wide range of legal topics and practice areas.
