The UK Law Society is a professional body representing solicitors and lawyers in the United Kingdom. As well as offering professional services to practising lawyers, such as negotiation services, confidential advice and training, they also offer free advice with no obligation to individuals looking for information on lawyers. This includes not only advice on contacting firms and legal processes, but also list of their accredited law firms by legal area. But how do firms get accredited and what does this accreditation mean?
How do law firms get accredited by the UK Law Society?
Accreditation is a voluntary service provided by the UK law society. Essentially, law firms apply to be accredited under their scheme and this accreditation illustrates quality, experience and professionalism in legal firms for each area of law. As well as this accreditation programme, the Law Society also recognises firms for their compliance with Lexcel, which is a practice management standard. Lexcel accreditation illustrates that the law firm in question has complied with the Law Society’s practice management standards, including client care, care management and risk management. It is a scheme which promotes continual improvement, as firms must be reassessed every three years.
