New Certification Standards
Prescribed for Estate Planning and
Probate Law Specialty
New standards and procedures proposed by the
Estate Planning and Probate Law Specialization Advi-
sory Board have been approved by the Supreme Court
Commission on Contint *ng Lawyer Competence, with a
proposed effective dat/ f Oct. 31.
Changes of particular interest relate to a reduction
in the specialty's annual CLE requirement and elimina-
tion of any waiver provision with respect to the written
exam. The proposed standards and procedures would
reduce the annual CLE requirement to 12 hours while
retaining the overall requirement of 90 hours to qualify
for recertification (certification is for five years). The
elimination of any waiver provision for the written exam
would require every applicant for certification to take
and pass the exam. Formerly, applicants with an LL.M.
in Estate Planning from the University of Miami Law
School and applicants with special or unusual qualifica-
tions could apply for a waiver of the written exam.
Reorganization of the standards and procedures
should make them easier to use and understand.
Comments should be sent to: S.C. Commission on
Continuing Lawyer Competence, P.O. Box 2138,
Columbia, SC 29202.   (For the complete text, seep. 20)

Management Problems?
Help is Just a Phone Call Away

If you have management respon-
sibilit'ies in your firm, you have
probably struggled to solve some
management problem only to later
find that your brilliant and innova-
tive solution is routine office protocol
in other firms. If you have five
lawyers in your firm and you need to
revamp systems and procedures to
accommodate growth, call a friend in
a 10-lawyer firm. Chances are that
the 10-lawyer firm addressed the
same problem three years ago.

To avoid the wasteful exercise of
reinventing the wheel, the Law
Office Management Committee has
established a management hotline,
to begin service in September. Man-
aging partners of firms across the
state and members of the Association
of Lega' Administrators have volun-
teered to help you with your firm's
management problems.
For answers to management
questions, call 799-6653 and ask for
the Membership Services Division.
