The family-law certification exam is fast approaching—October 14, for those of you in denial—but you still have plenty of time to study. For those of you attending the State Bar’s Advanced Family Law Course next week, make sure to check out Tuesday’s lunch panel called: Preparing for the Board Certification Exam. And, whatever you do, make sure you have your own copy of O’Connor’s Texas Family Law Handbook. This book has quickly become known as the premier guide for lawyers studying for the family-law specialization exam based on the book’s thorough and easy-to-understand outline format. And for code language, pick up O’Connor’s Family Code Plus, updated with critical 2013 legislative changes. With these two books in your study arsenal, you’ll be board-certified in no time.
