Florida Bar Approves IP Specialty Certification
According to Deborah C. España writing for Daily Business Review on July 26, 2006, The Florida Supreme Court recently approved amending Bar rules to add an intellectual property specialty. Applications for specialty certifications must be submitted to the Bar between July 1 and Aug. 31, and between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31. However, attorneys who seek certification in the two new areas won't be eligible to apply until the appointment of two new certification committees. "Attorneys may not be able to apply for certification in these two areas for the first time until the late fall and may not become certified until next spring," said Dawna Bicknell, head of legal specialization and education for the Florida Bar.
