Specialist accreditation

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 competence and knowledge in their particular area of expertise
  • the public, and the legal profession, with a link to practitioners who are leaders in their field.

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

  • The Specialist Accreditation Logo and post nominals, are a nationally recognised "mark of excellence".

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.
