The NBTA and ABPLA are the only organizations that certify attorneys in the fields of civil trial practice or in professional liability practice at the national level. Both organizations are accredited to certify attorneys by the American Bar Association. Both organizations require proof that the attorney is in good standing, is substantially involved in litigating and trying cases (including minimum trial day requirements), has met continuing legal education requirements and has been subjected to peer review by persons against whom they have tried cases, as well as judges before whom they have appeared. Both organizations require passing a written examination. NBTA, in addition, requires a trial court memorandum and an annual disclosure of misconduct to monitor quality and a continuation of substantial involvement in civil trial practice.
