Continuing Professional Development

​​​The NZLS Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme w​​as launched on 1 October 2013. Each individu​al 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 cli​ents record their attendance here.

After a CPD event

Each time you attend a CPD-eligible seminar, we will send you a certificate of attendance.

The 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 CPD inquiries.
