Family Law Hub

Training & CPD FAQs

How do I attend a webinar?

Invitations are emailed to all Family Law Hub email subscribers. You then just follow the on-screen instructions to register and you will be sent reminders before the event. 

Do I need any special equipment or software to attend a webinar?

Just a telephone or speakers and a computer connected to the internet. We then send you instructions with a link that opens in your web browser. You can then hear the speaker, watch the slides and ask questions all from your own desk.

How much training does the Hub provide run each year?

There is a constant stream of courses made available on the site:

live webinars: we usually run at least 6 live webinars a year

webcasts: recordings of presentations and discussions hosted by Mills & Reeve with the help of 29 Bedford Row. You can just listen to the audio or you can also answer accompanying optional online course to cement your knowledge of the topic and fulfil your training objectives.These are available only to paying Hub members.

How do I update my training & competence records?

You have two ways to record training activities: an old fashioned training record or our newer competence record.

  1. The training record is used if you just want to record what you did and how long you spent doing it.
  2. The competence record allows you to add additional information about your objectives and what you learnt. This will help you meet the practising certificate requirements under the competence regime now in place for solicitors and barristers. 

NOTE: Any courses completed online are automatically noted on your training and competence records.

You can also easily record any reading and other activities undertaken on the Hub to your competence record by clicking the 'Add to competence record' link available on each page of the site.

If you undertake training outside the Hub you can also add that to your Hub training record or competence record so you can maintain your training record in a single place.
