BSB Workshop: CPD 2017 - Understanding the new regime

On 15 February, we held a workshop with the Bar Association for Commerce, Finance & Industry (BACFI). Our Director General Dr Vanessa Davies gave a presentation to help more than 50 barristers with the new CPD regime for Established Practitioners.

The session included a short presentation on the rule changes and guidance on how to plan CPD under the new regime.

Sally Bevan, chair of BACFI's professional issues sub-committee said: "We had very positive feedback from members about this event. It also attracted a lot of non-members of BACFI and we all found it very useful. As Vanessa said it will take us all a while to get used to the new regime but this presentation and the very helpful materials provided have started us thinking".
