New Jersey Board on Attorney Certification
- The Supreme Court of New Jersey authorized the Board on Attorney Certification to administrate the state's program for certifying lawyers. The program sought to protect consumers from misleading advertising claims by creating an objective and reliable standard for specialization. Furthermore, the Board of Attorney Certification is responsible for the operation of the certification program, including financial, policy, and rule-making functions. The program requires attorneys to demonstrate a certain threshold of experience, education, skill, and knowledge in a particular field of the law.
