WASHINGTON, D.C. — The ball was absolutely flying out of Nationals Park at this year’s MLB Futures Game; I think everyone except 2017 No. 1 pick Royce Lewis homered, and that’s only because he wasn’t in the game. The power surge takes a bit of a shine off of some of the home runs, although there were still many positive takeaways from the game.

  • Dodgers outfielder Yusniel Diaz homered twice in five at-bats, both of which were hit very hard to center field on fastballs of 96 and 95 mph, respectively. Diaz was a top-100 prospect right after he signed but

Legal Specialization

The State Bar certifies attorneys as specialists who have gone beyond the standard licensing requirements.

California Rule of Court 9.35 served as the basis for the creation of the State Bar Legal Specialization program. The program was intended to provide a method for attorneys to earn the designation of certified specialist in particular areas of law, increasing public protection and encouraging attorney competence.

The program was the first of its kind in the United States, and it has served as a model for other state programs for certifying legal specialists around the nation.

Admissions Information Management System (AIMS)

The Legal Specialization program is now administered through the Admissions Information Management System (AIMS) community. 

Through AIMS, licensees can register for the Legal Specialist Examination, apply for initial certification or recertification, report Legal Specialist Continuing Legal Education (LSCLE) Compliance, or submit other legal specialization requests. Current certified specialists can find initial certification

William Tyndale

Forbidden to work in England, Tyndale translated and printed in English the New Testament and half the Old Testament between 1525 and 1535 in Germany and the Low Countries. He worked from the Greek and Hebrew original texts when knowledge of those languages in England was rare. His pocket-sized Bible translations were smuggled into England, and then ruthlessly sought out by the Church, confiscated and destroyed. Condemned as a heretic, Tyndale was strangled and burned outside Brussels in 1536.

Tyndale’s English translation of the New Testament was taken almost word for word into the much praised Authorised Version (King James Bible) of 1611, which also reproduces a great deal of his Old Testament. From there his words
