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".

    In 2019 the speciality areas for accreditation are Family Law, Succession Law, Property Law and Taxation Law*.

    Information on these programs including application details and key dates will be made available soon.
