March 3rd, 2017 § 0 comments


On the ocassion of last week’s meetings in Vienna, 40 Bars and Law Societies signed the CCBE Memorandum on Mutual Recognition of Lawyers’ Cross Border Continuing Professional Development. Please click here to access the Memorandum in English and French and the list of signatory Bars and Law Societies.

The aim of the Memorandum is to promote and facilitate the free movement of lawyers within CCBE member countries where Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is mandatory or recommended. The MOU does not suggest any change to existing CPD standards of quality. By signing the Memorandum, the signatory Bars and Law Societies have agreed that: The number of CPD course hours attended or CPD credits of the training courses obtained by lawyers enrolled in a Bar or Law Society of a member country, should be considered in their signatory jurisdiction of origin to help fulfil their requirements of CPD obligations, in accordance with national, regional or local rules or regulations and without prejudice to each national, regional or local evaluation system.”
