Specialist Accreditation
  • Why should I be accredited?

Specialist accreditation is a significant achievement and valuable asset to recognise and promote your expertise in a specialisation, and thus enhance your reputation. It gives you the opportunity to distinguish yourself from your peers. Specialist accreditation also allows you to be identified by the legal industry and the general public as possessing the requisite skills and knowledge in your chosen area of specialisation.
