Share your views and experiences of the new CPD scheme

As you may know, in 2017, we introduced a new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme for barristers of more than three years' standing. At that time, we also committed to carrying out a period of further research to assess the impact of these changes.

We have commissioned IRN Research, an independent research company, to explore barristers' views and experiences of the new CPD scheme. The research involves an online survey, focus groups and in-depth interviews with barristers.

We emailed more than 8,000 barristers on the Established Practitioner's CPD Programme asking them to share their views on CPD by completing a brief online survey using a unique link. Please respond to the survey by 5pm on Friday 31 May 2019.

If you have not received an email but you would like to take part in the interviews or focus groups, please contact IRN by:

Any information you provide to IRN will be treated in confidence and reported anonymously and will be used only for the purposes of this research.

If you provide information via a survey for research purposes, the information will be deleted or kept in an anonymised format once the information has been analysed and reported upon. Please read our privacy statement  /footer-items/privacy-statement/
