Membership is open to any person including students, paralegals, solicitors, counsel and experts. In the case of multiple members from one solicitors’ firm or other organisation, voting rights (in relation to any meeting of the members of ACAL) shall be restricted to five members only.
We receive many requests for help from survivors of abuse. We are in a position, therefore to make referrals to Lawyers, who are members on the Panel (see below) Application details are on the Membership Details Page.
Cases will only be referred to solicitor members on our Panel. Solicitors on the Panel will have attended a satisfactory level of training.
Enquirers will be given a list of those solicitors who qualify for referral under our selection criteria, so that they can select a solicitor of their choice. Our members are not held out as “experts” in the field. A Personal Injury Panel is in existence.
ACAL cannot be held liable for the selection, recommendation, or performance of any member referred through the system.Find a Lawyer
