College of Law acquires legal education provider CPD Interactive

In a move to strengthen its online offering, The College of Law has acquired the business operations of CPD Interactive. 

CPD Interactive is an online provider of legal education and professional development and through its acquisition, The College of Law now has access to more than 120 courses facilitated through its platform.

Since CPD Interactive launched in 2008 it has delivered more than 12,000 courses, all of which cover the mandatory requirements for legal continuing professional development.

The acquisition of CPD Interactive will complement the College's current online catalogue of courses, webinars and skills development programs.

Chief executive officer of The College of Law Neville Carter says the founding owners of CPD Interactive Natalie Weiland and Liz Kollias will continue to work at the College of Law as part of the transition. 

"We are excited by the platform Natalie and Liz have built," says Cater.

"The College of Law will now apply its resources and the knowledge of its faculty to deliver even better education products to the Australian legal profession.

Carter says the professional development of lawyers has "never been more important", as the industry continues to experience rapid change. 

"Investing in quality education is critical for any lawyer wishing to keep themselves relevant, or to learn new skills to advance their career," he says.  

"That's why The College of Law has chosen to expand its range of educational products by acquiring CPD Interactive."

CPD Interactive will continue to offer its courses through its existing platform.
