Continuing Professional Development

We offer a series of professional legal courses through our Continuing Professional Development program.

UQ Law continuing professional development (CPD) courses are suitable for both 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.

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

CPD participants receive normal instruction but do not undertake course assessment and 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: Due to the COVID-19 dates and offerings are subject to change. Please contact prior to registering.
