Half way through the CPD year

All practising barristers are subject to CPD in 2008. If you have not received details about your CPD obligations or are unsure of them, please contact Dawn Elvy, Training Compliance Officer on 020 7611 1444 or email delvy@barstandardsboard.org.uk If you have any queries regarding courses and accreditation, please contact Liz Prats, CPD Officer on 020 7611 1444 or email

If you have already completed your 2008 CPD hours, you are encouraged to return your Record Card to our offices before the deadline date of the 31 January 2009. Some practitioners still appear to have old record cards with the 3 Bedford Row and 2-3 Cursitor Street addresses on. The BSB has been at 289-293 High Holborn for the past three years and no longer receives post from previous addresses. If you would like an up to date record card, please email Dawn Elvy or visit our website at www.barstandardsboard.org.uk under CPD/File Downloads. Practitioners are reminded that the CPD year operates on a calendar year basis and any practitioner who completes CPD hours for the 2008 requirement in 2009 will have to apply for an extension of time through the Qualifications Committee.
