The Risk Management Credit is distinct from the Law Society’s mandatory CPD requirements. While a CPD program may qualify toward the Law Society’s hourly requirements, it will not necessarily also qualify for the LAWPRO Risk Management Credit.
LAWPRO works closely with the Law Society, the Ontario Bar Association, the Canadian Bar Association, Federation of Ontario Law Associations (FOLA), The Advocates’ Society, Osgoode Professional Developments and other not-for-profit CPD providers to create programs that qualify for the LAWPRO Risk Management Credit.
CPD programs offered internally by LAW FIRMS (for firm LAWYERS and/or clients) may also qualify for the Credit, provided they meet all other eligibility requirements.
The CPD provider may not have submitted the program for approval or it may not have met our criteria to qualify for the Credit.
Yes, you may claim the credit as long as the approved program you attended AND your call date was prior to the September 15 deadline to claim for the following policy year.
You can claim the credit for participating in an approved program via a live webcast or online replay, provided you watch the entire program and have a copy of the program materials. For replays, on the CPD declaration form you should claim credit for a video replay of an approved CPD program.
We only keep a list of approved programs from the current CPD year. To tell if an older program was approved look for the LAWPRO Risk Management Credit logo in the materials.
If the internal CPD program at your firm was approved for the credit, you can select LAWPRO-approved firm CPD presentation on the declaration form.
For the Risk Management Credit to be applied to your premium, the online CPD Declaration must be completed no later than September 15. This allows LAWPRO to apply the Credit as part of your policy renewal beginning in October.
