Pearson’s Pamela Walsh is appointed to the Children’s Panel as she’s awarded The Law Society’s Children Law Accreditation

Pearson’s Pamela Walsh, Senior Solicitor in their Family and Child Care department has been recognised for her expertise in child care law and has been accredited by The Law Society by becoming a member of their Children Law Accreditation scheme.

The Children Law Accreditation is a quality mark set by The Law Society for practitioners who represent children in children law proceedings and is recognised by the Legal Aid Agency.

To become an accredited member, applicants must demonstrate that they 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
Applicants are also expected to meet the standards of practice and conduct outlined in the Code of Practice for Children Law.

To qualify for this prestigious accreditation, one must complete a training course, submit a detailed application demonstrating that they meet the strict criteria and attend an end point assessment. If successful, the accreditation lasts for three years.

Pam said: “I am so thrilled to have been accredited and recognised for my experience in Children Law and it’s a real honour to be an accredited member of the scheme which helps professionals such as guardians choose from a panel of experienced practitioners to represent the needs of children.”

With over 20 years’ experience in Care, Family and Children Law, Pam is a Resolution accredited specialist (Children Law Private/Domestic Abuse) undertaking care, children, family and matrimonial matters. She is also a member of Child Concern, a Committee member of Oldham Law Association and Mahdlo’s Patron representative on behalf of Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers.

Director and Practice Manager Joanne Ormston says: “Pam joined our Child Care team back in 2018 as a Senior Solicitor and is highly regarded in her profession. She has a real empathy towards her clients backed by strong determination to get the right results. She is not one to rest on her laurels and in addition to her accreditations and memberships, applying to be a member of the Children Law panel was the next natural move for Pam. She is also our go-to person when junior members join the team to help supervise them and pass on her know-how as they develop their own careers and we are delighted that she has achieved the recognition she deserves.”
