Each year, the Inner Temple holds a CPD Weekend for practitioners beyond the new practitioner stage. A weekend is often organised in conjunction with a Specialist Bar Association.
The weekend is typically split into a series of lectures by high profile speakers on the Saturday and optional practical advocacy exercises conducted by the Inn's advocacy trainers on the Sunday morning. The weekend is usually accredited for 6 CPD hours on the Saturday and 3 CPD hours on the Sunday morning.
Past weekends have covered topics such as Serious Sexual Offences, Practical Guidance for Appellate Advocacy, Employment Law and Vulnerable Witnesses. Details of CPD weekends for 2013 will be posted here in spring 2013.
