As part of the Council’s and the profession’s commitment to enhanced risk management, the Council has resolved that principal, assistant and consultant solicitors in private practice must attend two hours’ compulsory CPD in Risk Management in 2017. Our insurers have identified three areas which must be addressed in these two Risk Management CPD hours, namely File Management, Cyber risks and Undertakings.
In a pilot project for 2017, the Society has designed a bespoke Law Society of Northern Ireland 2 hour module on Risk Management for which there is a reduced charge of £30.00. This module will cover all of these three key areas and will not only be rolled out across Northern Ireland but will also be available as a webinar, also at a cost of £30. The events will take place as follows:
Tuesday 16 May 2017 Killyhevlin Hotel, Enniskillen 1pm – 3pm
Monday 22 May 2017 Canal Court Hotel, Newry 10am – 12noon
