    *Exempt from the Early Bird offer are CLC, YL and Accredited Specialist members. The registration fee for these membership categories is $270.

    Many believe the future of the legal profession will be decided by business leaders not lawyers. The need for T-shaped professionals, or lawyers with technical depth in an area of law coupled with a breadth of business and leadership skills, will become increasingly prevalent. As such, new lawyers can and should uncap their potential by taking the lead now. 

    Designed to support the development of emerging leaders, this workshop helps you to develop and leverage your personal brand to increase professional opportunities and provides strategies that you can implement in daily practice to give your career a contemporary edge. 

    Topics covered include:

    • Distinguishing your vision, purpose and values 
    • Developing your personal brand and embracing your own unique self-expression 
    • Risk management strategies for new lawyers
    • The statutory responsibility to ensure that the highest ethical and professional standards are maintained by all persons within a law firm
    • The fundamental importance of protecting client confidentiality and maintaining client legal privilege
    • The need to avoid conflicts of interests in all its forms

  • Covid-19

    In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we have put in place precautionary measures to keep our members and staff safe. As we all make sense of the changing situation, the LIV is guided by two priorities: ensuring safety and health while minimising disruption to our learners. 

    To the end of March, we will be offering our CPD activities remotely, working with all our presenters to minimise the impact on the learning experience.  We will seek to maintain the full schedule of activities and we will continue to monitor the situation and update you on an ongoing basis. 

    Recognising the end of the CPD year is looming our CPD program will now run in Webinar format. In addition, the LIV has a range of Education videos that you are able to access. New titles will continue to be added over the coming weeks.  If you have any questions regarding existing or future registrations for LIV CPD activities, please call  9607 9311  or email register@liv.asn.au.

    Information from the VLSB

    In these special circumstances, the Victorian Legal Services Board (VLSB) understands that solicitors may need to complete more than 5 of their CPD units through private study of audio/visual material. This means that for the 2019-20 CPD year only, the VLSB will not be enforcing the 5-unit cap on private study of audio/visual material as set out in the Legal Profession Uniform Continuing Professional Development (Solicitors) Rules 2015 (CPD rules). 

    Details to note:

    • The audio/visual material used for private study must be specifically designed for the purpose of updating a solicitor’s knowledge and/or skills relevant to his/her practice (CPD rule 8.2). 
    • Solicitors are already permitted to complete an unlimited number of units of ‘web-based programming’ under the CPD rules. Web-based programming is different to private study of audio/visual material because it takes place in real time or involves an interactive element such as a discussion group.

    Please also refer to Rules and our website for further information about CPD requirements.
