As announced on January 11, 2023, the Law Society is in the process of updating its membership database. In the new database, there will be a CPD reporting system which will allow members to report their CPD activities (for example the name of the activity, date, time, number of hours, etc.).
Members will now also be required to annually certify to the Society that they have completed their CPD requirements. Members will have to check a box certifying that they have completed their CPD requirements and will be expected to keep records of activities they attended as well as receipts for sessions purchased. Members are reminded that a misrepresentation to the Society could give rise to disciplinary proceedings.
It is still your responsibility to report and certify your CPD credits by December 31 every year.
IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE CPD COMPONENT OF THE NEW DATABASE WILL BE DEVELOPED AND AVAILABLE FOR YOUR USE LATER THIS SPRING. UNTIL THEN, MEMBERS ARE ASKED TO MANUALLY KEEP TRACK OF THEIR ACTIVITIES FOR THE 2023 CALENDAR YEAR.
