Requesting Approval for an Activity

Lawyers can log in to the member portal and apply for approval of a course before or after they attend it. Education providers can become a CPD Provider and apply for approval of courses.

  • A course provider may apply for pre-approved status, in which case the provider is responsible for ensuring the courses meet the prescribed accreditation above criteria, or may request that the Law Society review and approve each course.  Pre-approval status is dependent on the provider maintaining integrity and quality according to standards.
  • A lawyer may apply individually for accreditation of a course if a provider has not done so.
  • A lawyer must individually apply for accreditation of group study, teaching, writing and mentoring plans.
  • All applications by providers and lawyers must be submitted electronically through the Law Society website log-in.
  • Approval decisions are made by Law Society staff. A provider or lawyer may ask staff to review a decision a second time.
