The Law Institute of Victoria is offering specialist accreditation in the areas of criminal law and children’s law in 2022.
Victoria Legal Aid supports 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 2020
In 2020, 21 criminal law and eight children’s law candidates who participated in our study support programs 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 our criminal law, youth crime or child protection panels.
