CPD TRAINING RECORD
The Society does not keep records of individual practitioners' attendance at courses. All
practitioners subject to the CPD Scheme are required to maintain their own record of their
training activities with sufficient details for verification purposes. A recommended CPD
training record form can be downloaded from the Society’s website at www.hklawsoc.org.hk.
The Society can request production of the training record at any time.
Many firms keep duplicate training records. However, solicitors are reminded that the onus is on the individual to maintain the training record. Practitioners who are unable to produce the training record may be required to undertake the training again.
Practitioners should ensure that all the relevant details of all CPD courses or activities undertaken are entered onto the CPD training record
Apart from download training record forms, members are also permitted to edit their training records online, save the records for their reference and submit them to the Law Society by logging in members' zone. Besides, the records of members who attended the Law Society's and the Academy of Law's courses will be imported to the training records of individual members.
NOTE: CPD training records should be retained for at least two (2) CPD practice years after the period to which it relates. In any event, the CPD training record for the CPD practice year in which a practitioner last engaged in practice must also be retained as supporting evidence for his statement of CPD compliance should he later resume his practice and apply for renewal of his practising certificate. If any of the CPD points recorded in the training record involve CPD point(s) carried over from the preceding CPD practice years, the CPD training records for all relevant years should also be retained as supporting evidence for audit purposes.
