Accredited family law specialists

It is possible to obtain accreditation from the Law Institute of Victoria as a Family Law Specialist. To become an Accredited Family Law Specialist, a family lawyer must:

  • Have been practising for at least five years.
  • Pass a series of three examinations, including a mock client interview, a written examination and a mock file. The examinations are held every two years. Usually less than half of those who sit receive accreditation.
  • Furnish the Law Institute of Victoria with written proof of completion of further education and training every year.
  • Re-apply for accreditation every three years.

Accreditation is an independent measure of a lawyer’s level of skill and expertise.
