We support lawyers undertaking work for legally aided clients to apply for specialist accreditation by providing practical study supports to help lawyers prepare themselves for the specialisation examinations. Our support program includes lectures, facilitated study intensives, study resources and exam practice.

The support program is offered to community legal centre lawyers and private practitioners who are on or applying to be on our criminal or children’s law panels.
