All Law Society members are required to report their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours every year. As a service to CBABC members, attendance at Section meetings and other CBA PD events are recorded to the CBA PD Resource Site. The My Programs feature helps members track progress towards their mandatory continuing professional development.
We'll make it easy for you -- when it's time to report to the Law Society, you'll have a printable record of your PD hours obtained through CBA programs. You can check your record any time, to see if you've completed your mandatory 10 hours of PD plus two hours of ethics/practice management requirement.
To view your report visit http://www.cba.org/pd/myprograms_en.aspx.
Log in with your Surname and CBA Member ID number. View Upcoming Programs and Past Programs, or select the dates and print off a report to use as a guide when you report to the Law Society.
