Corporate Membership

Corporate membership is available to companies active in providing expert witness services.

It extends the benefits of individual membership to all practising staff within the Corporate member’s employment at favourable rates.

Many find this an attractive route, particularly to support their staff’s personal and professional development.

There is a requirement that any juniors are supervised appropriately when undertaking expert work.

Individuals wishing to be registered with The Academy still need to satisfy the requirements of the relevant grade of membership to uphold consistent standards.

To apply for Corporate Membership on behalf of your company, please complete the on-line application form (preferred) or download, complete and return this form.
