Professional Education

Continuing Professional Development

9 Stone Buildings considers itself market leader in the provision of CPD through an extremely active seminar programme. Our chambers are authorised for the provision of CPD hours by the Law Society, the Institute of Legal Executives and the Bar Standards Board.

Seminars provided by members of chambers cover a wide range of areas and are well attended.

In addition, many members provide in-house seminars for solicitors, accountants and insolvency practitioners.

They also provide continuing training by lecturing for professional course providers such as CLT, STEP and Jordans.

Our extensive provision of CPD provides our clients with up to date briefings on current legislation and case law, with particular emphasis on recent changes.
