The New Jersey Supreme Court Board on Attorney Certification administers the certification program in this state. The Board consists of nine members, all of whom are members of the Bar of New Jersey. In addition, there are five Certification Committees that are responsible for reviewing certification applications and for creating and grading the certification examinations. These Committees are: the Civil Trial Law Certification Committee; the Criminal Trial Law Certification Committee; the Matrimonial Law Certification Committee; Municipal Law Certification Committee; and the Workers' Compensation Law Certification Committee. Each Committee reports its eligibility findings to the Board for its report to the Supreme Court.

The Board is responsible for the operation of the certification program, including: financial, policy, and rule-making functions. The Board also acts as an appellate arm when an aggrieved attorney appeals a decision made by a Certification Committee. Click here for a list of board and committee members.
