Continuing Professional Development

2024 CPD Calendar

Register for CPD Events

Our CPD program aims to ensure professionals and volunteers are updated on the latest developments, maintain professional standards, and gain professional development points for lawyer and migration agent professional registration.

Experienced staff and private practitioners present our workshops, and we are grateful for their support.

CPD events are online and are interactive. RAILS retains the right to vary or cancel CPD activities. Any fees paid will be refunded if RAILS cancels the activity.  Questions about refunds or any complaints should be directed to the RAILS Education Coordinator, and if not resolved, then to the RAILS Director.

RAILS CPD's cover substantive law areas around refugee and migration law as well as the core areas of practical legal ethics, practice management and business skills, and professional skills.

RAILS is an accredited CPD provider for migration agents with the Migration Agents Registration Authority.

If the CPD is relevant to your work, lawyers and migration agents can get CPD points for RAILS CPD events. Queensland solicitors can get 1 point for each CPD hour and half points per half hour. Other states check your law society rules. For migration agents, workshops (maximum 30 participants) give 1 MARA Category A point per hour but if numbers are over 30 they turn to seminars with 1 Category B point per 1.5 hours.
