Why Choose an Accredited Specialist Criminal Lawyer?
The Law Institute of Victoria’s Accredited Specialist Badge is not a “paid for” membership badge. Accredited Specialisation needs to be earned, and needs to be maintained every year. The LIV has set the requirements for Accredited Specialisation to ensure that:
“Practitioners who are accredited as a specialist are recognised as having an enhanced skill level, as well as substantial involvement in established legal specialty areas.
The LIV requires such specialists to demonstrate superior knowledge, experience and proficiency in a particular area of law to ensure that recognition as an accredited specialist is meaningful and reliable.”
