The North Carolina State Bar, an agency of the State of North Carolina, certifies lawyers as specialists in designated practice areas as a service to the public. The program assists members of the public in the selection of legal counsel by identifying lawyers who have demonstrated special knowledge, skill, and proficiency in certain areas of law. The program also gives lawyers a credible way of making their expertise known to the public and other lawyers.
To be certified as a specialist in a practice area, a lawyer must:
– Be an active member in good standing with the North Carolina State Bar for at least five years,
– Devote at least 25% of his or her practice to the specialty during the past five years (substantial involvement),
– Attend continuing legal education (CLE) seminars in the specialty,
– Be favorably evaluated by other lawyers and judges (peer review), and
– Pass a written examination in the specialty practice area.
