The end of the CPD year is approaching for barristers. Rather inconveniently, if logically, it falls on 31 December 2014. I will be mainly unavailable from 24 December 2014 onwards. New sign ups will not be possible between then and the end of the year, and there will also be limited if any support available to existing users. I therefore strongly suggest that anyone who would like to sign up before the end of the year does so now, and that anyone who still needs CPD tucks in and gets it under their belt as soon as possible while I am available to iron out any problems.
There are 27 CPD hours of training available in a range of immigration law and skills courses. Feedback is 75% “excellent” (the rest is “good”). A new course on costs in immigration cases is in development and can be accessed for reference, although no CPD can be claimed for that yet. Membership also includes access to the forums and ebooks are only £1 for members.
As previously signalled, the price of group membership may be increasing for new sign ups next year.
