- devote at least fifty percent of his/her practice to bankruptcy cases;
- demonstrate legal excellence in the practice of bankruptcy law;
- display a serious commitment to principles of civility, ethics and professionalism; and
- demonstrate commitment to the continued educational development of bankruptcy professionals and to professional activities that will benefit the public, members of the bar and the court system.
