The Committee of ALPHA is organizing a series of stimulating symposia at which the Gerousia, the learned elders of our legal fraternity, will speak ("the logos"):

(i) about their life experiences, and/or

(ii) judicial insights, and/or

(iii) on particular topics with a legal content or flavour

in the context of an Ancient Hellenic aphorism, saying or philosophical thought, and with emphasis on continuing professional development or education.


MCLE/CPD points -


The Law Society does not accredit ALPHA's activities for MCLEs. Solicitors may claim 1 MCLE point per hour or part thereof if they consider the symposium to be relevant to their immediate or long term needs in relation to professional development and the practice of the law. You should refer to Rule 42.1 for the criteria in assessing an activity and Rules 42.2 – 42.9 for the amount of units that can be claimed for an activity.


The NSW Bar Association has accredited each symposium for 1 CPD point for Barristers. As the subject matter or content of each Symposium is likely to vary, Barristers should apply their CPD point(s) to the strand that is most appropriate for the Symposium attended.
