* CLE/CPD schemes are based upon self-assessment of an educational activity. In order to count an educational activity towards mandatory CLE/CPD requirements a legal practitioner must determine for themselves that the activity extends their knowledge and skills in areas relevant to their practise or professional development. If you are in WA, please note we are not a WA Law Society accredited CPD/CLE provider and an audio session will not count towards your points.
