The LawScot Trainee CPD programme is open to Scottish qualified legal trainees anywhere in the world and is able to be completed entirely online.
Lawscot Trainee CPD course is made up of four modules covering the following PEAT 2 Outcomes:
- Professionalism (module 1)
- Professional ethics and standards (module 2)
- Professional communication (module 3)
- Business, commercial, financial and practice awareness (module 4)
As a trainee on this programme, you will have all 40 authorised CPD hours covered with the training days on each of the modules above. Trainees will also have complimentary access (up to a total of 20 hours) to our extensive webinar library, allowing you to make up the remaining 20 hours of unauthorised TCPD to combine with the 40 hours of authorised TCPD that the programme provides.
There are several available training day dates per module and you will have the opportunity to select your preference shortly after registering (this can always be amended later on, if needs be). We will reintroduce optional classroom based sessions when public health guidelines allow.
Each module has a corresponding training day, and there several options for each throughout the year - only one training day per module needs to be attended. The training days will be delivered online via Zoom. The options for 2023 are as follows (note that * denotes that the training day is currently full. We will be adding more dates for 2024 shortly.):

"The LawScot TCPD programme is extremely helpful and encourages real in-depth participation and through that allows for reflection of ones work. The organisations use of technology is clever and very effective. The use of break out rooms in Zoom really mirrors, as much as possible, the environment of an actual face-face CPD event."
"Lawscot offers an excellent CPD programme that offers you the opportunity to really reflect on your training, career and most
importantly what you want to get out of your career. You can really start to understand your motivations in life and work life."
"The ethics training session was informative and thought-provoking. I feel more able to make decisions and know where to ask for advice after attending the session."
