Accreditation Specialisations

 

The Society does not currently offer Accredited Specialisation but members are welcome to apply to the Law Institute of Victoria.

 

 

Accredited Specialisation is a significant achievement, providing practitioners with the opportunity to:

  • attain a higher level of competence and specialist skills
  • enhance career development and opportunities
  • achieve greater recognition among peers
  • promote their expertise in a particular area of law
  • differentiate themselves from others practising in a specialty area
  • increase referral work from the public and peers
