To join ACAL please complete and submit this form and select the appropriate membership type you require.
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.
In the case of experts and counsel, we operate separate expert and counsel database lists which can only be accessed by other members and may assist them in locating the appropriate counsel and/or expert for a particular case. To join as an expert or counsel member, please complete the form below. Expert and counsel applications will be assessed by our executive committee before being accepted.
In order to comply with the solicitor’s code of practice, and in particular because of the availability of public funding in this area of work, all members must be able to offer to and advise clients upon the availability of public funding to victims of abuse subject to qualification with the appropriate means criteria.
