Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Lawyers in some jurisdictions across Canada are required to undertake mandatory Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours. The Law Society of Upper Canada and Law Society of British Columbia, for example, consider participation in an LLM course as an eligible education activity which fulfills members’ annual CPD substantive requirements (ie. 9 of the 12 required hours). A select number of LLM courses have been accredited for professionalism hours and are indicated on the schedule.
LLM courses fulfill substantive CPD requirements and professionalism hours, if applicable, whether they are taken without assessment (audit) or with assessment.

“I took Administrative Law through Single Course Enrollment to complete my NCA requirement and to explore the idea of pursuing an LLM in future. The course exceeded my expectations. Its comprehensive coverage of the subject left no stone unturned. A holistic approach to this complex area allowed me to better understand and appreciate the law and jurisprudence, providing a practical framework to approach administrative issues. Thanks, OsgoodePD!”
