CPD Day for Rural, Regional and Remote Legal Practitioners

Friday 17th May, 2019 8:30 am – Friday 17th May, 2019 5:20 pm
Swan Room, Level 1, Parmelia Hilton
14 Mill Street Perth

The Law Society of Western Australia recognises that country lawyers face a number of challenges unique to working away from an urban environment.  The isolating impact of distance can make it more difficult for country lawyers to get together in any one region as a profession, to share collegiality and support, and to learn from each other through tailored Continuing Professional Development initiatives.

After a successful first year, the Law Society is once again hosting a CPD day for RRR lawyers in Perth during Law Week.

Acknowledging the tyranny of distance, this CPD day is offered free for Country members* of the Law Society and heavily discounted for Country non-members at $200 for the entire day and provides 6 CPD Points across all four competencies.

The Law Society welcomes regional practitioners to Perth for a combination of professional learning and networking, concluding with a chance to socialise over drinks.

Registration for the CPD Day includes special Parmelia Hilton Perth Hotel accommodation rate per night.  Valid for the nights of Thursday, 16 and Friday, 17 May 2019.  Bookings must be received before Thursday, 2 May 2019. Please see further details on how to book the back of the flyer.

To register your attendance at the event, please fill out the registration form linked above and email to cpd@lawsocietywa.asn.au

Registrations close Wednesday, 15 May.
