Accreditation review update

19 April 2016

The Law Society is currently reviewing the Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme with a view to re-launching the scheme in early 2017. We recognise that criminal practitioners have had a turbulent period over the last three years and we want to ensure we can support, promote and protect the valuable work that current and active duty solicitors undertake.

We contacted accredited members on Tuesday 19 April 2016 with a notification that we will start our research on 25 April 2016 in the form of an online survey. You can download the communication from the link below.

Please check this webpage for updates on the accreditation review. To receive updates we send via email, please ensure your e-mail address is correct on your My SRA account.

July 2016

Our online research survey with accredited members closed in May 2016; thank you to those who took part. We are currently reviewing the results which will inform our next steps. We will communicate any changes to members at the earliest opportunity. Should you have any questions, please contact us at accreditation
