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 and are subject to full course assessment.
  • Non-award basis: Participants must meet the relevant course pre-requisites, are required to submit assessment and are awarded results, but are not enrolled in a University of Queensland undergraduate or postgraduate program. The course may be used for credit towards an award program in the future, subject to conditions at that time.
  • CPD basis: No particular entry requirements apply and participants are not required to undertake course assessment. The course may not be used for credit towards an award program.

University rules governing enrolment, course fees and withdrawal apply to students enrolled in on a program or non-award basis. CPD participants should note that enrolment will not entitle them to student use of the University's IT or library facilities. Different enrolment deadlines apply for studying on a program, non-award, or CPD basis. 

CPD points

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