CAN ON DEMAND WEBINARS BE COUNTED TOWARDS CPD HOURS?
All ADLS CPD activities (including On Demand sessions) are tailored to comply fully with the CPD Rules.
Care is needed to ensure that on demand items from other providers are CPD compliant.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE IN ADLS CPD 'IN-HOUSE' WITHOUT INFRINGING COPYRIGHT?
A common approach to CPD by law firms is to send one lawyer to an external (e.g. an ADLS) seminar and then have that lawyer present an in-house follow up session for other lawyers of that firm who did not attend.
Ordinarily, provided that the lawyer who attended the seminar does not copy and circulate the ADLS materials s/he received at it, then this practice does not breach copyright. It is therefore an acceptable practice.
CAN MORE THAN ONE PERSON VIEW A WEBINAR?
Yes, group bookings are available.
If, however, only one lawyer from a law firm is registered for a webinar, but other lawyers also watch the webinar, this is a clear infringement of ADLS copyright.
WHY DO PRESENTERS' MATERIALS SOMETIMES ARRIVE ONLY SHORTLY BEFORE A CPD ACTIVITY BEGINS?
As soon as we receive the presenter's materials for a CPD activity, we review and format them and then circulate them to attendees as quickly as we can.
We understand that many of you would like to receive the materials the day before. However, our carefully chosen presenters are also very busy professionals. So, while we do understand your needs, we also have to respect our presenters' existing commitments. We greatly appreciate your patience. Rest assured that we will continue to get the materials to you as quickly as we can.
We always ask our presenters to provide a paper and a set of slides to support their presentation. Occasionally our presenters decide that a paper is not appropriate, and they then provide more extensive slides. If we know in advance that a paper will not be provided, we will note that in our advertising synopsis.
CAN ADLS' AUCKLAND EVENTS BE ACCESSED BY PEOPLE AROUND NZ AND OVERSEAS?
Almost all ADLS CPD in person activities are available for viewing in high definition (720p) via our custom, CPD compliant, New Zealand hosted live stream platform. As a result, legal professionals from throughout New Zealand and overseas are able to participate in ADLS' high quality in person CPD events.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A LIVE SEMINAR OR WEBINAR?
If you are registered to attend a seminar or webinar and are likely to miss the event on the day due to work or other commitments, we may be able to help.
Seminars: If you find that you are unable to attend a seminar, we suggest that you send someone from your office in your place. We will then transfer the booking and earned CPD hour(s) to that person.
Webinars: Again, if you find that you are unable to attend a seminar, we suggest that you send someone from your office in your place. We will then transfer the booking and earned CPD hour(s) to that person.
If the event is recorded, we can provide you with the recording. Please note that this is unedited and does not reflect the quality of our On Demand service. Nor will you earn CPD hours simply by watching the unedited recording, as there will be no interactive component.
If we make the recording available as an On Demand item, then you can wait for the edited recording to become available, watch it and complete the questions. You will then earn the appropriate CPD hour(s).
Contact email@example.com to request an On Demand version of a missed session.
