IT CPD – and it’s legal

Is this the best value for CPD points? More importantly, are you interested in the intersection of the worlds of computers and law?

The Society for Computers and Law  is the leading UK organisation for legal professionals advising and practising within the IT sector.

SCL membership is currently only £95 a year and includes over 12 hours of free online CPD among its many benefits. Their online CPD scheme is accredited by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority in England and Wales. In other countries of course you will need to check with your own governing body.


Copyright & Design Rights – free CPD?

The Law Society of England and Wales offers a podcast on ‘Introduction to Intellectual Property – Copyright & Design Rights’ which could earn 1 free CPD point for some people. It looks at the definition of,  and the law governing, each right. It also examines the methods of protection against unauthorised third party use and the ways in which these rights can be unlawfully infringed upon.
