McGuire Wood & Bissette is pleased to announce that Kathleen Rose Rodberg has been appointed to the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization’s Elder Law Specialty Committee. Please join us in congratulating Kathleen on her new role with the North Carolina State Bar.
“The Board of Legal Specialization was created in 1983 by the North Carolina State Bar and began certifying North Carolina lawyers as board certified legal specialists in 1987. The Board was established to create a method by which qualified North Carolina lawyers might become certified as specialists in designated areas of the law. The goals of the legal certification program are twofold.
First, the program assists in the delivery of legal services to the public by identifying to the public those lawyers who have demonstrated special knowledge, skill, and proficiency in a specific field. By identifying these lawyers, members of the public can more closely match their needs with available services.
Second, the legal specialization program seeks to improve the competency of members of the bar by establishing an additional incentive for lawyers to participate in continuing legal education and to meet other requirements of specialization.”
