CPD Points by Teaching (Group 2 and Group 3 Lawyers and s36B Foreign Lawyers only)

 

Apart from the CPD Activities listed at Public CPD points and Private CPD points, Group 2 and Group 3 Lawyers and s36B Foreign Lawyers will be able to obtain CPD Points for speaking, teaching or participating in a panel discussion in any conference, lecture, seminar or workshop which deals primarily with matters relating to the practice of law.

A Group 2 or Group 3 Lawyer, or an s36B Foreign Lawyer who speaks or teaches at an Accredited CPD Activity will obtain Public CPD Points. A Group 2 or Group 3 Lawyer, or an s36B Foreign Lawyer who speaks or teaches at a non-accredited CPD Activity which deals primarily with matters relating to the practice of law will obtain Private CPD Points.

A Group 2 or Group 3 Lawyer, or an s36B Foreign Lawyer who speaks or teaches etc. in non-legal categories of learning activities e.g. financial literacy, office productivity and computer literacy does not obtain any CPD Points.

CPD Points may only be obtained for speaking at a ‘live’ learning activity only. No CPD Points may be obtained for time or effort expended in making a video recording of a learning activity.

In general, a Group 2 or Group 3 Lawyer, or an s36B Foreign Lawyer shall obtain 3 CPD Points for each hour in which he/she is engaged as a speaker, trainer or member of a panel discussion. (This is in contrast to 1 CPD point for each hour for which a lawyer attends a CPD activity as a learner.) The minimum engagement period shall be 20 minutes (excluding breaks), for which the Group 2 or Group 3 Lawyer or the s36B Foreign Lawyer shall obtain 1 CPD Point. For a panel discussion, the duration of the entire discussion shall last at least 20 minutes. Each panellist will obtain CPD Points corresponding to the duration of the entire discussion.
