All practising barristers are required to complete Continuing
Professional Development (CPD). Failure to complete CPD can result
in Corrective Action or a referral to the Bar Standards Board's
Professional Conduct Department for enforcement action.
The latest information on CPD requirements is available on the
Bar Standards Board website.
The Bar Standards Board established a working group to review
CPD and began a consultation on its report in June 2011. Further
details can be found on the Bar Standards Board website.
