Session 3: The Continuing Competence Debate (11-12pm AEDT)
Subject: The Role of Regulators in Building Skills and Driving Cultural Change
The goal of legal education and professional development specialists is to provide relevant, contemporary, and meaningful learning opportunities for our learners. Yet this is can be lost when we juggle the regulatory and compliance landscape where the value of learning is often determined by the amount of CPD units.
This session will draw on recent examples of recommendations for legal learning and skill development. A panel of speakers will explore the continuing competence requirements needed of the legal profession and how we can leverage the regulatory environment to drive the changes needed through quality CPD delivery and best practice.
- Highlight the differences in CPD regulation & guidance across the jurisdictions
- Discuss the key risk areas identified by regulators in the current and future skills of lawyers
- Identify the opportunities to improve and provide CPD in these areas
Session Format: Presentation with panel discussion
- Chris Humphreys, Author of ‘Getting the Point: Review of Continuing Professional Development for Victorian Lawyers’
- Rolf Moses, Chief Executive Officer, Queensland Law Society
- Kellie Hamilton (Chair) GM Member Knowledge & Learning, Law Institute of Victoria and CLEAA Executive Member
