*** IMPORTANT INFORMATION ***
Further to the Directive from the Ministry of Education laid down in March 2020 that all training facilities must be closed, the Legal Affairs Department transferred all training to Webex.
Whilst the training centre is now open, the sessions are being held via Webex until further notice. All scheduled sessions will proceed at their designated date and time, live via an online portal rather than at the center.

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.
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 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 will build on the foundational years of the CLPD programme to provide advanced analysis of case judgements and legislation.
This year's online Ethics course will help legal consultants understand and apply the new Anti-Money Laundering regulations and how they will impact them in their ever day professional lives.
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.
