Abstract
Specialist certification offers a model and perhaps a path for a new approach to professionalism in law that could come to resemble accepted approaches in medicine and other professions. The article describes the limitations of the current approach to specialty certification in the USA and surveys certification programs in Australia that create incentives and methods for increasing professionalism. The article concludes with a section on "Lessons from the Medical Profession."
