Continuing Professional Development

The TC Beirne School of Law offers a series of professional legal courses through its Continuing Professional Development program.

The courses have been selected from the School’s Master of Laws program and are suitable for law graduates and professionals with an interest in contemporary legal issues. Most courses are run intensively, usually over a four day period, with some offered on a semester-long basis.

You may enrol in the courses in one of three ways. The basis of your enrolment will affect your entry and assessment requirements:

  • Program basis: Participants must meet the relevant program entry requirements  
  • Non-award basis: Participants must meet the relevant course pre-requisites
  • CPD basis: No particular entry requirements apply and participants are not required to undertake course assessment

University rules governing enrolment, course fees and withdrawal apply to students enrolled in on a program or non-award basis. Students in these categories are required to undertake course assessment.

CPD participants should note that enrolment will not entitle them to student use of the University's IT or library facilities. Further, courses cannot be used for credit towards an award program in the future.

CPD points

UQ Law courses may be endorsed for CPD points. Please consult your professional organisation for details about claiming CPD points.
