The American Board of Certification (ABC) is enjoying renewed interest this year. The combination of the CLLA Academy and the ABC has proved to be a strong mix—the support we have received from both organizations has been tremendous. The ABC has gained some highly motivated board members, and applications for certification in all three areas are coming in at a record pace.
The American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Specialization has approved the merger of the bankruptcy law programs, and the ABC is actively seeking formal recognition of the merged programs in all states in either program was previously approved. Additionally, we have applications in process in California and Texas.
The leadership is very excited about the growth in the program and the overall acceptance of the ABC in the insolvency community. The first offering of the full exam, including all three specialty areas, will be administered in Chicago on April 6. The next offering will be on May 2 in Washington.
