First before one learns those subjects they need to become 'Rabbi', the 
person has leared quite a bit of Talmud. There are two 'types' of 'smichah' 
given. 1. Yoreh yoreh. This means that the person is qualified to rule on 
questions involving kosher laws. These are found in Shulchan Aruch Yoreh 
Deah. 2. Yudin yudin. Means the person is qualified to rule on civil 
matters. This is from Shulchan Aruch Choshen Mishpat.
