Reciprocal CPD Program for Government Lawyers

Reciprocal CPD Program for Government Lawyers

The Government Solicitors Committee in collaboration with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission introduced a Reciprocal CPD Program for State and NSW-based Commonwealth government agencies in 2013.

The program allows government solicitors from participating agencies* to register for in-house CPD programs hosted by other participating government agencies.

Registrations for all events will be processed by the host agency. If CPD sessions are rearranged or cancelled, the website will be updated as soon as possible and individual participants will be notified by the host agency. All government agencies are encouraged to join the program.

To participate in the program, each agency is asked to provide details of at least one CPD seminar per year. If your agency has a seminar to include, email: governmentlawyers@lawsociety.com.au.
