Legal Training CPD

Our training packages range from 1-hour seminars to multi-day intensive workshops and formal certification and qualification-based training. We customise each session to meet your requirements in relation to timing, topics and the level of experience of the audience or team members attending.

Although we discuss the underlying technical aspects and legislation in our sessions, Balfour Meagher takes a practical contemporary and common-sense approach so you can easily apply this knowledge in the context of your business or organisation.

We offer face-to-face training, eLearning and blended education options.
