Clarkson Hirst Solicitors Limited

Charlotte Bamber has been awarded the Law Society Children Law Accreditation, a recognised quality standard for practitioners representing children in children law proceedings.

The accreditation covers all types of children law work and is recognised by the Legal Aid Agency.

It’s a way for clients and professionals (such as guardians) to choose a qualified practitioner when a child needs representation.


To receive the Children Law Accreditation, you must have enough experience to show that you have:

  • personally conducted cases and represented parties in children proceedings
  • carried out advocacy for clients
  • a thorough awareness of ethical issues that can arise in children cases
  • an up-to-date knowledge of guidance, legislation, case law and practice developments
  • the ability to work directly with children, explore their competence and understand their wishes and feelings
