All this time, when conducting CPD Programmes and Certificate Courses we were restricted geographically, but now we can reach out to our entire membership of over 21,000 spread across the country, and those interested could participate. The response has been very encouraging. Considering that these courses are beneficial to many sectors, we have also reserved some places for non-lawyers as well.”
