Learning outcomes/reflections can be found or added on your CPDPR here under the 'My Activities' heading.
ADLS CPD suggested learning outcomes/reflections will be automatically added to your record and can be edited by selecting the 'Edit a reflection/learning outcome' option
Non-ADLS learning outcomes/reflections can be added by selecting the 'Add a reflection/learning outcome' option once the activity has been added to your record, and then edited by selecting the 'Edit a reflection/learning outcome' option.
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.
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.
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.
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).
