ABA Says Lawyers Can be Called “Privacy Specialists”

The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates recently approved International Association of Privacy Professionals’ privacy law specialist accreditation plan and said that lawyers can now claim the privacy specialization.

According to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, a lawyer can only represent himself as a privacy specialist once certified by an ABA-accredited organization such as the IAPP which is a not-for-profit, non-advocacy membership association for privacy professionals.

Around 10,000 attorneys have already received their Certified Information Privacy Professional certification from the IAPP for U.S. privacy law since August 2017.
