Professional Development

At the heart of our CPD programming is 'learning-by-doing'. Our skill-based workshops offer you practical, hands-on learning in a safe and supportive environment with leading faculty who are trained by us. We ensure you are in good hands.


As the voice of advocates, The Advocates' Society takes a stand on law and policy by intervening in court cases that impact the profession, and by making submissions on legislation and policy. Learn more about our advocacy initiatives here.
