The NZLS Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme was launched on 1 October 2013. Each individual lawyer must take responsibility for their own CPD requirements and complete at least 10 hours of CPD activities each full CPD year.
The CPD year runs from 1 April - 31 March and declarations must be filed at the end of each CPD year.
At a CPD event
A Bell Gully CPD-eligible seminar will be denoted by this logo and it is important that Bell Gully clients record their attendance
After a CPD event
Each time you attend a CPD-eligible seminar, we will send you a
certificate of attendance.
NZLS website hosts an easy to use, downloadable CPD Plan and Record for you to use and a mocked up example is provided. If you have any queries about making your CPD declaration, please email
