Comprehensive & Accredited Distance Learning
Clients in custody have a legitimate expection that the advice they receive from prison lawyers will be based on an accurate knowledge of the law as it applies to them.
One way of identifying yourself to prisoners as possessing such knowledge is to display the ‘OK Logo’ in your advertising and on your stationery.
The ‘OK Logo’ is awarded to those who within one year of registration successfully complete the Institute’s Certificate of Competency in Prison Law course – and prisoners up and down the country know to look for it when searching for a prison lawyer.

Certificate of Competency in Prison Law Eight DVD Modules (6 CPD points per module)

Accreditation lasts for one year and reaccreditation is obtained by attending a one-day prison law update course each September – no further examinations are necessary.
Hundreds of lawyers, Prison Service Officers and Governors and many prison inmates themselves have already benefitted from this course – but don’t take our word for how good it is, just read what people themselves have to say:
