Upcoming LIV Specialist Accreditation opportunities

Wednesday, 4 October 2017

The Law Institute of Victoria is offering specialist accreditation in the areas of criminal law and children’s law in 2018. We support lawyers undertaking work for legally aided clients to apply for specialist accreditation. We provide a practical study support program to help lawyers prepare themselves for the specialisation examinations. The support program includes facilitated study groups, professional legal education lectures and access to resources.

Successful accreditation in 2016

In 2016, a total of 23 lawyers who participated in our criminal law study support program successfully obtained specialist accreditation.

The support program is offered to community legal centre lawyers and private practitioners who are on or applying to be on Victoria Legal Aid's (VLA’s) criminal law, youth crime or child protection panels.

If you are interested in being part of VLA’s 2018 specialisation study support program for criminal law or children’s law, please contact us today.
