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.
