The Government of Dubai Legal Affairs Department is proud to introduce the fourth year of the Continuing Legal Professional Development Programme for legal consultants who are registered on the practicing roll of practicing legal consultants in the Emirate of Dubai.

The Department continues in its aim to provide a world-class learning environment to enable legal consultants to meet the ever-evolving requirements of their clients.

Each legal consultant registered on the roll in the category of practicing legal consultants will still be required to obtain sixteen (16) CLPD points on a yearly basis. Eight (8) of those points at least must be obtained by completing the Mandatory CLPD Activities. Eight (8) points shall be obtained from the Accredited CLPD Activities selected by legal consultants from among the Department’s accredited activities, in so far as one accredited activity shall be no more than four (4) points.

 

Learning pathways

The Department has built on the success of the learning pathways from year 3. This year the CLPD programme will be introducing a series of courses under the following headings:

 

Technical skills

Technical skills will include a series of courses designed to improve the skills of legal consultants beyond the law and which are required to maintaining professional excellence in a fast changing legal industry.

 

Legal skills

Legal Skills will build on the foundational years of the CLPD programme to provide advanced analysis of case judgements and legislation.

 

Ethics and Governance

This year's online Ethics course will help legal consultants understand and develop a world class governance framework.

Legal consultants are required to complete a minimum of one course from each of the three pathways, and then will have the choice of completing a fourth course from either the legal or technical skills pathways to complete four Mandatory courses and attain the required minimum of eight hours mandatory CLPD.

As per the ethos of the project we are consistently evolving to bring new practical courses. We will also be running year one, year two and year three courses for those that did not have the opportunity to previously complete these courses.

If you have completed a course in Year 1, 2 and 3 you will not be given CLPD points for repeating the same course.
