Note: this course is not designed for barristers, and is not accredited by the Bar Standards Board.
The course can be read on screen and all the links to relevant web sites described in the text are provided, making an interesting and useful course experience. There is a straight forward test at the end to be returned to Delia Venables for marking. We hope you will enjoy this ebook and find it interesting and useful.
You can see the questions here (you do not have to have already purchased the e-book to see the questions). The questions are not difficult in themselves but are intended to indicate, for CPD purposes, that you have indeed worked through the materials, visited some of the sites described in it and considered the issues raised.
Here are a few pointers to help you answer the questions:
I am normally able to send you the reply within 2 working days. However, occasionally there are computer problems or I am even on holiday! If you wish to check on the latest situation with respect to possible problems or delays, please see The Problems Page.
You can fill in this form online and submit it to me (the process of doing this is the same as answering the test questions). If you would prefer to remain anonymous, you can print out the form, fill it in by hand and post it to me at 10 South Way, Lewes, East Sussex BN7 1LU.
A multiple use licence, suitable for organisations with several people likely to use the e-book and including the licence for up to 5 people to take the course, costs £200 plus VAT.
For organisations purchasing the multiple use licence and wanting more than 5 people to take the course and obtain the CPD, additional CPD entitlements can be purchased in packs of 5, for £20 a person, ie £100, plus VAT (obviously, each person still has to take, and pass, the online test!). You can purchase the course from the infolaw site here.
After completing the purchase, the user can access and download the course, and when ready, complete the brief test and be credited with the CPD.
Purchasing is by secure credit card processing and allows immediate access to the course. If you do not wish to pay by credit card, other payment methods can also be accommodated on the infolaw site, including sending a cheque. Online access is enabled on receipt of payment.
