Yay! I’ve done my CPD professionalism hours!

Most of you don’t know what the Hell I’m talking about, but quite a few of the Law Society’s 44,000 members do.

    For us so-called experienced lawyers, the LSUC’s CPD requirement is the equivalent of Ontario’s mandatory Drive Clean emissions testing.

    Congratulations

      Drive Clean, great analogy! Many folks in other walks of life have to do continuing ed as well, so forgive me if I borrow your metaphor at Construct Canada in December.

    Because we all know having the same 20 people from Toronto lecture us the very basics of the job really improves professional practice in the province.

      Ty,

      Law Societies and salaries go so well together!

    They brought that in up here a couple of years ago. It’s window dressing – meant to appease the public and allow us to remain self-governing as a profession. Competent lawyers will still seek out the continuing legal education they need to do their jobs, the incompetent ones will now attend the compulsory training and spend the day surfing the web or reading the newspaper at the back of the room.

      so Mark… does Pareto’s principle apply here wherein 80% of the competent lawyers are contained in 20% of the total because I’ve had my fill with the incompetent ones especially the senate types or to paraphrase Sir Winston

      “never have so many felt entitled to so much for doing so little”

    I went to non-practicing status years ago. You should too!! You aint gonna practice again. Much less expensive to keep the LSUC badge. Just a suggestion.

    I belonged to my local TA before I retired and joined our local RTA. But through the TA I always did ProD, usually through my PSA. We had to keep up our CC Cert annually, but my PC was permanent. I was also a PA with the TF and had a repertoire including N&G, ConRez,ViMit, RR, and assorted other acronyms.

    (I grew up on military bases…we had lots of this stuff…it impresses the heck out of those not in the club.)

    I practiced law until I got it right, then I quit because I felt that I didn’t need any more practice!

    Tim,

    True. Here in Quebec, we can get quality at a reasonable price but the way to do it is to go through the regional or local bar divisions. And who can forget internet courses offered by the Bar.
