New Certification Standards
Prescribed for Taxation Law Specialty
New standards and procedures proposed by the Taxation Law Specializa-
tion Advisory Board have been approved by the Supreme Court Commission
on Continuing Lawyer Competence with a proposed effective date of October
31, 1991.
Changes of particular interest relate to an increase in the specialty CLE
required for recertification (from 120 hours to 150 hours) and a requirement
that applicants for original certification pass ar. examination administered
by the specialty. Applicants for original certification who have been awarded
an LL.M. in taxation law from an ABA accredited law school not more than
five years prior to application are eligible for a w iver of the examination.
In most respects, the o ndards and procedures proposed by the Taxation
Board are similar to standards and procedures for the estate planning and
probate iaw specialty which were approved earlier this year by the South
Carolina Supreme Court. Reorganization of the standards and procedures is
expected to make them easier to use and understand. Comments concerning
the proposed new standards and procedures are solicited and should be sent
to: South Carolina Commission on Continuing Lawyer Competence, P.O.
Box 2138, Columbia, SC 29202.            (For the complete text, see p. 14)
