• ‘Repeat Courses’ – the pre-existing rule against undertaking repeat courses is now explicitly stated in the Guide.
  • Judicial Work Shadowing Schemes – the Ministry of Justice and ELA Employment Tribunal schemes can no longer count towards CPD. Accordingly, no form of judicial shadowing qualifies for CPD purposes.
  • Life Coaching Skills and Career Development Courses – neither can qualify for CPD.

A copy of the General Guide can also be found on our website at: www.BarStandardsBoard.org.uk.

If you have any concerns or queries about these changes or any other aspects of CPD, please do not hesitate to contact the CPD department on 020 7611 1444 or by email, CPD@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk
