In the State of California, the State Bar will certify attorneys as “specialists” if they go above and beyond the standard state licensing requirements. The State Bar Legal Specialization Program provides a path for attorneys to earn the title of “Certified Specialist” in their particular area. This program was designed to meet several goals including giving the public increased confidence and civil protections as well as encouraging attorneys to expand their knowledge, involvement, and competence. California was the first state in the United States to offer a path to certification.
To obtain a certification, above and beyond the standard requirements to be admitted to the bar in California, attorneys must pass a written examination in their field. They must have at least five years’ experience with at least 25% of the active practice being dedicated to the certification area to demonstrate expertise in the particular area of law. They also must complete additional classroom training and also be favorably evaluated by peers as well as by judges who are familiar with the attorney’s work, ethics, and practice. Attorneys must also maintain a level of involvement and competence as well as re-certify every five years.
