LIV Submission for the VLSB+C CPD review

LIV Submission for the VLSB+C CPD review

By LIV Member Knowledge and Learning and Policy, Advocacy and Professional Standards teams

Continuing Legal Education Wellbeing 


The LIV has made a submission to the VLSB+C for its review of Continuing Professional Development.

The LIV submits that the current CPD rules support the desire to ensure meaningful, relevant and accessible CPD for the for the entire profession, thereby ensuring standards of excellence in the provision of legal services.

However, in consideration of the issues identified in the current scheme, the LIV suggests improvements and alternatives that will provide greater opportunity for lawyers to use CPD to enhance, develop and maintain their knowledge skills and competencies relevant to their service and/or practice as well as to comply.

These include introducing a risk based audit approach based on VLSB+C data, and mandating skills in key risk areas to increase the baseline level of competency in:

  • Digital literacy and technology
  • Safe workplace culture – Wellbeing, Bullying and Sexual Harassment
  • Supervisory obligations
