Study groups offer a flexible and convenient way for lawyers to obtain Continuing Professional Development hours. A study group involves a group of lawyers getting together (in-person or virtually) to discuss content that meets the criteria set out in the CPD Policy. Study groups work best when the group is made up of four to five lawyers. One member of the group must act as the facilitator each session to chair the meeting. All study groups qualify for CPD hours, based on the actual time spent discussing the content. These hours may also qualify as ethics hours as set out in the CPD Policy.
CPD hours are NOT available for:
•File specific discussions;
•Time spent reading materials, whether before or after the study group session.
