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 may also qualify for the Credit, provided they meet all other eligibility requirements.
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.
The offices of LAWPRO are located on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, Anishnabeg, Chippewa, Haudenosaunee and Wendat peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. LAWPRO respects and acknowledges the histories, languages, knowledge systems, and cultures of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit nations.
