Why anticpd?

Legal CPD training has worsened over the years, driven by the standard approach of churn- release the same training courses, by the same providers, on the same topics. This worked 20 years ago, but in today’s digital world, where the face, heart and life of legal is changing drastically- traditional CPD is no longer fit for purpose.

Enter: antiCPD. 
We’re turning CPD on its head. Whilst still retaining the core aspect of training and professional development, antiCPD delivers training courses for lawyers that are fringe, fresh and relevant.

Why?
Because lawyers today need to be best prepared for the future and, the best way lies in skills development, not in substantive law.

Back in the day, the law was about “what you know”, but in today’s world, the “what” is a given. Instead, how we practice the law, who we work for, which tech stacks we use, how we improve value-add, when to adopt different practices for new client types, and much more- these factors and relevant problems are entirely uncatered for in the existing training market, where lawyers are still treated as independent experts in their field, rather than well-rounded professionals with multiple skill sets and knowledge areas.

Instead, antiCPD

  • Uses experts as facilitators and educators
  • Focuses on non-law for lawyers
  • Aims to develop skills and new knowledge transfer
  • Guarantees to be interesting and engaging
