Police station attendance counts as QWE

The Police Station Representatives Accreditation Scheme (PSRAS) is the means through which paralegals working in criminal law or those with no previous legal knowledge or background, can train to provide advice and assistance to suspects detained at the police station for which payment is claimed from the Legal Aid Agency (LAA).


Immigration advice is QWE

Immigration and Asylum Law Accreditation is open to paralegals employed at a practice or an organisation that is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) or the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). The accreditation covers all immigration work that can be done under a Legal Aid Agency (LAA) contract and used as a quality mark for privately funded work.
