Resource Centre Now Aligned with Updated CPD Program

April 12, 2023

The Professional Development Profile (the Profile) was released in June 2022, as the first step in the development of the new approach to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for Alberta lawyers. The Profile serves as the framework for the new CPD Tool that lawyers will use to develop their CPD plans starting this July.

The Law Society will be releasing guidance and resources to support lawyers in creating meaningful and effective CPD plans. To help lawyers easily locate resources relevant to them, the Law Society has aligned the key resources on our website to the nine domains of the Profile:

  1. Legal Practice
  2. Continuous Improvement
  3. Cultural Competence & Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
  4. Lawyer-Client Relationships
  5. Practice Management
  6. Professional Conduct
  7. Professional Contributions
  8. Truth and Reconciliation
  9. Well-Being

Within each domain, lawyers can filter resources by competency, practice setting and format.

For more information on the nine domains, review the Profile in detail.
