Supreme Court Adopts Insurance Coverage Law as New Specialization Area

Effective October 1, 2011, the Supreme Court adopted Insurance Coverage Law as a field of law subject to specialization designation in Ohio pursuant to recommendation of the Commission on Certification of Attorneys as Specialists.

The Court’s Commission on Certification of Attorneys as Specialists (CCAS), last June 24, approved insurance coverage law as a specialty area in Ohio and adopted the following definition: “Insurance Coverage Law is the area of law involving issues between insurers and policy holders concerning the rights and responsibilities that arise under insurance policies.”

Additional information on the Commission’s Standards for Accreditation of Specialty Certification Programs for Ohio Lawyers can be found here.

The Court’s announcement is here.
