The Law Society has specialist accreditation programmes including Family Law Accreditation, Mediation Accreditation and Quality Practice Standard (QPS).
Family Law Accreditation
The Law Society offers specialist accreditation in the area of family law. The Accredited Family Law Specialist Programme provides family law practitioners the opportunity to be formally recognised as having a high level of competency in their field.
The Law Society is a Recognised Mediation Accreditation Body (RMAB) under the National Mediation Accreditation Scheme (NMAS).
The NMAS identifies standards of practice and competencies for mediators in Australia. A person must be accredited to NMAS standards to qualify as a mediator under the Rules of the Supreme Court.
Quality Practice Standard (QPS)
QPS recognises firms that have developed and adhere to documented internal processes, designed to improve client satisfaction and avoid wastage.
QPS law firms are audited each year to ensure they comply with standards which go beyond the requirements set out by state legislation. Firms complying with QPS can use the Approved Quality Practice logo on their letterheads and promotional material.
