Unfortunately, you cannot claim CPD points from different seminars within the Symposium in different CPD years.
As the Symposium is being held on 11 March 2022, you may claim CPD points attained from the Symposium in either the 2021/2022 year or the 2022/2023 but not both.
We refer you to rule 48(2) of the Queensland Law Society Administration Rule 2005 which provides:
To remove any doubt, the listening to or viewing of recorded material of an event that occurred in the period 1 January to 31 March may, in accordance with rule 47(3), be counted in the current or following CPD year, but not both.
Given the Symposium as a whole is one event, the wording of rule 48(2) is quite clear that points attained from one event cannot be claimed for two different CPD years.
