Specialization in law practice management

In a recent article, I suggested that bar associations offer a specialization certificate in law practice management:

"Specialists and their clients do benefit in some way from the more intensive training, but this really is just a matter of degree from the typical CLE requirements.
What if bar associations took the principle further by offering to lawyers specialist certifications in law practice management skills? How is this different from the specialized training that many lawyers have received by earning their CPA or MBA? These questions are important and need to be answered affirmatively and creatively if CLE training is to meet the real needs of lawyers in today’s marketplace."
I’m glad to say that I’ve received many responsive comments.  Let us know what you think.
