The Legal Profession Uniform Continuing Professional Development (Solicitors) Rules 2015 have been in operation since 1 July 2015. The objective of the Rules is to provide the minimum requirements for continuing professional development for solicitors.

For an overview of CPD frequently asked questions see our FAQ page.

Practitioners are encouraged to keep up to date with their CPD commitments throughout the CPD year. Steady attendance and engagement with CPD will assist practitioners in fulfilling their required CPD points without having a last-minute rush at the end of the CPD year. To do this, it is recommended that practitioners research and plan their yearly CPD activities.

When researching which seminars to attend to comply with the Rules, practitioners should consider the specific skills and knowledge they need to improve, grow and enhance their practices. As a guide on how you may reflect on your professional development needs, consider the UK Solicitors Regulation Authority’s guide.
