The Consulting Group on the Establishment of a Legal Specialization in Privacy Law (Privacy Law Group) is tasked with studying the practice area to assess whether there is sufficient need and interest to create a specialty, as well as whether the area is sufficiently defined as to create a useful specialization. If the Privacy Law Group determines that certification in this area of law is feasible and appropriate, they will draft appropriate certification standards for review by the California Board of Legal Specialization and the State Bar Board of Trustees.
The Privacy Law Group will consist of 13 members, including at least one, but up to two members of the public.
The Privacy Law Group seeks diverse candidates, including practitioners, judges, and others with expertise in the proposed specialty area, as well as business experts. Time commitment for the Privacy Law Group, four to six meetings per year through 2024.
Please submit your application by July 1, 2022.
