With the CPD deadline fast approaching, many lawyers will be looking for ways to complete their annual requirements. On this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, produced in partnership with LawCPD, we discuss why legal professionals may find themselves scrambling to get their points in and how best they can manage in the home stretch.

Host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with LawCPD director Sarah Mateljan about the various circumstances facing lawyers that may impact their ability to accrue the requisite points, whether the post-pandemic new normal has made things harder for lawyers, pain and pressure points in finding time to get points, and practical steps that can and should be taken to avoid overwhelming one’s self in anticipation of the deadline.

The pair also detail how best lawyers can ensure they are ticking the right boxes in accruing points, balancing their education accordingly between capped and uncapped, how providers can help lawyers keep an account of their points, what CPD sessions may still be available so close to the deadline, what LawCPD is currently offering, and how best lawyers can avoid the mad scramble this time next year.
