Instead of buying your CPD little-by-little, you can purchase a discounted block of CPD hours which you can use throughout the practice year. Our CPD packages are great value and all of them can be shared among colleagues.
When purchasing one of our packages, you will receive a bank of hours you can use to book any of our conferences, seminars or webinars, as well as our extensive library of on-demand CPD. Please note that our CPD packages do not include trainee CPD, certification, regulatory courses and essential skills and careers courses.
Throughout the year we continually add new training to our catalogue of available CPD, so whether you work in a legal practice, in-house or as a sole practitioner, you’ll have plenty of relevant and interesting options to choose from.
If you need a specific number of hours, please get in touch via CPD@lawscot.org.uk. We're happy to put together bespoke custom packages to suit members' needs.
- Purchase the package of your choice.
- Email email@example.com whenever you see any training you, or one of your colleagues, would like to attend. We will make the booking and keep a record of the number of hours remaining in your bank.
- Your CPD package will only be valid for the current practice year, so please make sure that you use your hours between 1 November 2023 and 31 October 2024. We will not be able to carry any remaining hours over to the following practice year.
