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.


Session Objectives

  1. Highlight the differences in CPD regulation & guidance across the jurisdictions
  2. Discuss the key risk areas identified by regulators in the current and future skills of lawyers
  3. Identify the opportunities to improve and provide CPD in these areas


Session Format: Presentation with panel discussion
