About Child Welfare Law Recertification
NACC Certification as a Child Welfare Law Specialist is valid for five years, at which point certified attorneys must apply for recertification. Recertification is required by all ABA accredited certification organizations, and helps to ensure the integrity of specialization by requiring certified attorneys to demonstrate continued substantial involvement in their area of specialization.
The Application Process
NACC Recertification involves an abridged application process that does not require a writing sample or examination. The recertification fee is $300 and includes your annual maintenance fees (NACC and ABA). QIC Application Fee Waivers cannot be applied to recertification applications, and any outstanding fees must be paid before you can apply for recertification.
Below, you’ll find the electronic Recertification Application, as well as a selection of applicable standards and forms to help with the recertification process. You can also upload any of your supporting materials at the bottom of the page.
If you have any additional questions about recertification, please contact NACC Program Administrator, Carolyn Moershel at (303) 864-5327.
For specifics on recertification requirements in your state, please refer to Section 3 of the appropriate standards document below.
