About - Continuing Professional Development Law Videos | CPDonline.ca

About

CPDonline.ca is an on-demand video site that allows lawyers and paralegals and finance professionals a convenient opportunity to access and view continuing professional development (CPD) content as required by their respective law societies and regulatory bodies.

Legal CPD videos cover Professionalism and Substantive topics and are between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours in length.

Quality content from eminent speakers is our goal: to this end we have partnered with The County of Carleton Law Association, The Toronto Lawyers Association, Middlesex Law Association, Frontenac Law Association, Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia, and some of Canada’s top law firms to source speakers and timely topics.

Our primary target market is small firms and sole practitioners that reside outside large urban centers. These smaller firms find it more difficult to access CLE events than their urban brethren. Our service provides them with an affordable, convenient alternative to attending events.

I get to choose what I want to see and create my own cpd; I get to see what other lawyers are doing in other regions of Ontario and I love that. I really really appreciate that; I get to see what’s going on in London, Toronto, etc. You get to see experts that you don’t normally see.
