About Progressive Legal CPD

We’ve found in the past that webinars for lawyers (especially free ones!) don’t provide really good practical knowledge, especially in the mandatory subject areas.

Some people we spoke to expressed frustration and disappointment that most mandatory webinars were either extremely boring, not helpful, useful or practical, or they were annoyed that their time was wasted, or were essentially just a sales pitch for someone else’s product.

Our goal is to provide better CPD programs to lawyers that will provide better webinars with practical knowledge, instead of just “ticking the box” each year. We believe this type of education should provide useful tips for day-to-day activities.

We’re going to organise great content from experts, asking common questions from lawyers and interviewed by us from that legal perspective.

*Seminars and other CPD activities are not accredited by The Law Society of New South Wales. Under the CPD Rules, if this particular educational activity is relevant to your immediate or long term needs in relation to your professional development and practice of the law, then you should claim one “unit” for each hour of attendance, refreshment breaks not included. The annual requirement is ten (10) units each year from 1 April to 31 March.
