Continuing Professional Development for attorneys

The Council of the LSSA approved Mandatory Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for attorneys at its meeting on 29 November 2010. This was after the topic of CPD was canvassed with practitioners at all the AGMs of the LSSA's constituent members in October and November. However, indications are that there will be no piecemeal amendments to the Attorneys Act, and that the issue of CPD will be taken up in the Legal Practice Bill.
