CPD requirements for 2019, as per the Law Society of Ireland:

CPD Regulations (Solicitors (Continuing Professional Development) Regulations 2017) (S.I No. 529 of 2017) came into effect on 1 January 2018.

The 2019 CPD cycle runs from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019 and there is no carry over of hours from one cycle to the next.

The Regulations continue to provide for the requirement for a solicitor (including a senior practitioner) who is a sole practitioner or a compliance partner and/or an anti-money laundering compliance partner to undertake in each practice year (i.e. CPD cycle) a minimum of 3 hours of regulatory matters, of which at least 2 hours shall be accounting and anti-money laundering compliance.

Solicitors are advised to familiarise themselves with these Regulations which are contained in the following "2019 CPD Scheme booklet"

Minimum 2019 CPD Requirement: 20 hours

There is a maximum limit of 7 hours CPD which may be completed within a single day and a maximum of 50% of a solicitor’s minimum CPD requirement (modified or otherwise) may be claimed for time spent in relevant eLearning and/or writing relevant material that is published in any one CPD cycle.

For further information regarding CPD Regulations for 2019, please see the Law Societies website.
