ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand


Conference CPD

Download our fillable CPD booklet here.

The programme promises to deliver valuable education to help you be the best in-house lawyer you can be and to improve your performance while you earn CPD hours. You may find you satisfy a significant number of your 10 hours at the ILANZ conference or you might satisfy a lesser number based on your professional judgement of what is relevant for you and your learning needs. 

The CPD initiative is learner centred rather than prescriptive. Lawyers are responsible for identifying and fulfilling their own CPD requirements while reflecting on learnings and next steps. 

All sessions may be eligible for CPD if you can relate to your learning needs as set out in your CPD plan. This forms part of your CPD Plan and Record (CPDPR) and should be kept with all of your CPD materials.

You can use the fillable CPD booklet to record your hours and use as proof of attendance. We will also have limited hard copies available at the ILANZ registration desk.
