Continuing Professional Development

We offer a series of law professional development courses through our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program.

UQ Law School CPD courses are suitable for both law graduates and professionals with an interest in contemporary legal issues and practice. Most courses are run intensively, as short courses usually over a four-day period, with some offered on a semester-long basis.

Our small seminar-style teaching groups offer CPD participants one-on-one interaction with our leading academics and industry experts.

CPD participants receive instruction but do not need to take assessments. They also cannot use the course for credit towards a degree program. Our courses count toward Queensland Law Society CPD points if you can demonstrate relevance to your legal practice.

Enrolment closes two weeks prior to the course start date. 

​Note: Offerings are subject to change and availability. Please contact prior to registering.
