Each lawyer certified in real estate law has at least five years of full-time experience. They've also had significant involvement in real estate law cases for at least three years.
Each certified attorney is required to:
- Pass Peer Review
- Complete 45 hours of continued legal education within the three years immediately preceding application
- Pass a written examination demonstrating proficiency, skill and mastery in the field of real estate law
Board certifications are valid for 5 years. From the time the certification is issued, till it expires, lawyers are required to attend continuing legal education courses.
To re-certify, lawyers must still pass the same required as initial certification. Please note that not all experienced lawyers are certified by the board. However those who are certified have their skills and expertise recognized by the Florida Board.
