Specialist accreditation

For information on 2017 applications, please contact the specialist accreditation team on specaccred@qls.com.au or 07 3842 5929.

Queensland Law Society’s Specialist Accreditation program offers accreditation in 10 areas of specialty. The program provides:

  • practitioners with an opportunity to be formally recognised for their high level of competency and knowledge in their particular area of expertise
  • guidance for the public, and within the legal profession, indicating those practitioners who are leaders in their area of expertise.

Accredited specialists have extensive experience, and have successfully completed an advanced, peer reviewed assessment program specific to their area of expertise.

The specialist accreditation assessment process is challenging, but holds multiple personal and professional benefits. Only those practitioners who have successfully completed this assessment can distinguish themselves from their peers by referring to themselves as accredited specialists. They are able to advertise their expertise through the use of the Specialist Accreditation Logo and post nominals, which is a nationally recognised "mark of excellence" throughout the legal profession.

Be formally recognised as a leader in your area of expertise … become an accredited specialist.

Consult the Specialist Accreditation Candidate Handbook and the Assessment Criteria in your area of interest for all important information.
