DOES THE ILANZ CONFERENCE QUALIFY FOR CPD HOURS?

To qualify for CPD hours under the Lawyers and Conveyancers Act (Lawyers: Ongoing Legal Education – Continuing Professional Development) Rules 2013, activities must be structured with defined learning objectives, interactive and verifiable. The ILANZ conference will satisfy all of these requirements. However, the question of whether the ILANZ conference can count towards CPD hours for an individual lawyer depends on that lawyer’s identified training needs and their Continuing Professional Development Plan and Record.

The conference offers streamed selections, so you can customise your conference attendance based on your training needs. There is no limit on the number of hours that may be claimed at any one event so some delegates might satisfy up to 8 hours of CPD at the ILANZ conference while other delegates might satisfy a lesser number based on their professional judgement of what is relevant for them.

Please contact ilanz@lawsociety.org.nz if you have any further questions about CPD.

WHAT IS THE ADDRESS OF THE CONFERENCE VENUE?

The conference is being held at the Dunedin Centre, 1 Harrop Street, Dunedin 9016. The nearest airport is the Dunedin Airport, 28km away.

IS THERE TRANSPORT AVAILABLE TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT TO CONFERENCE?

Transport from airport – ILANZ will be meeting all planes that arrive after 12pm on Wednesday afternoon and on Thursday morning up until 12pm to provide transport from Dunedin Airport to the Distinction Dunedin Hotel, the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross and the Scenic Hotel Dunedin City.

Transport to airport – there will be buses available to transport delegates to the airport from 4pm to 5.30pm on Friday afternoon and also on Saturday morning up until 12pm.
