About Accreditation
Accredited Specialists logo

Choosing the right lawyer is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. The right lawyer will listen and understand your problems.

The right lawyer will find practical solutions that save you time and money. And the right lawyer will have the proven expertise you need in the right area of law


Accredited Specialists: solicitors with proven expertise

Now the Law Society's Specialist Accreditation Program can help you find the right lawyer.

Specialist Accreditation identifies, monitors and registers solicitors specialising in 13 areas of law.

Only those solicitors who pass the Law Society's exacting tests can use the Specialist Accreditation logo.


Only the best pass the test

Each Accredited Specialist solicitor must have:

  • at least five years full time practice
  • at least three years specialty work
  • passed rigorous exams in communication, problem solving, client service and, of course, the law.

So when you see the Law Society's Specialist Accreditation logo, you know you're on track for the right lawyer.
