Learning and Development

The Federation of Community Legal Centres offers Continuing Professional Development to our members throughout the year.

A calendar of training sessions for 2022 will be released in January to provide a framework for your training plans for the year.

The learning and development opportunities may also return CPD points under a mandatory field.

If you would like to be kept informed of upcoming learning and development opportunities, please send an email to [email protected].


Community Lawyers CPD Event

March 2022

Our annual CPD event draws on the expertise of practitioners within our sector. Sector-led skills based presentations aim to build knowledge and skills that will strengthen the capacity of lawyers, enhance client service delivery, and assist lawyers to adapt to legislative change in a meaningful way.

Now Open for Expressions of Interest

Members and other interested professionals are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to present at our annual CPD Event. All sessions will be held online to maximise the sector’s availability to attend given the changeable working conditions we may be subject to.

The Federation recognises that CLCs have been under enormous pressure with the impacts of COVID on their workplace, therefore we would like to provide you with preliminary information about our 2022 CPD Event. While exact dates and times yet to be confirmed, we can confirm that it will be held in March.

EOI application form

EOIs should be submitted using this EOI form. While some details are still to be confirmed, this will help you begin your planning. We will confirm days and times in January, but if you could indicate your usual availability, this will help us in our scheduling.

EOI closing date

EOIs can be submitted via email to [email protected] before COB Friday 4 February 2022. 

Of course, you will be most welcome to submit your EOI at any time leading up to this. We would also welcome having a discussion with you about your potential subject in the lead up to your submission.

We hope that this longer lead time will give you more flexibility in planning your EOI.
