*Florida applicants: If you are contemplating applying for NBTA board certification in civil trial advocacy, criminal trial advocacy or family law advocacy and you are a member of the Florida Bar, please DO NOT APPLY unless you are already board certified by the Florida Bar in a similar specialty area. If you are interested in applying for certification with the Florida Bar, please contact them at 850.561.5850.

**Florida, South Carolina and Ohio require a higher number of CLE credit hours in order to advertise or communicate the NBTA certification. Check with your local rules or the NBTA for more details. NBTA does not recognize an age or years in practice exemption for CLE.
