Australian lawyers who qualified in the state of Victoria will have to ensure they meet the requirements of a new continuing professional development (CPD) scheme or risk losing their practising certificates.
A scheme introduced by the Law Institute of Victoria (LIV), which takes effect from 1 April, will require a minimum of 10 CPD units a year. Where a certificate lapses, the solicitor must reapply for admission, which is different to a renewal and will involve a reassessment of their eligibility for admission by the Board of Examiners for Legal Practitioners.
Ken Astridge of the London office of Mallesons Stephen Jacques said: “Victorian solicitors in the UK need to take a more deliberate approach to complying with requirements.” As a result, it is launching a system aimed at helping alumni meet the requirements.
