Certificate programs can be an excellent way to prepare for bachelor’s degree programs. By acting as an introductory foundation to the program’s subject matter, certificate programs give scholars an edge in striving toward exceptional academic performance.

Some wonder, “what is a certificate in law studies?” and why, if they intend to complete an LLB or JD, they might need a certification. A law studies certificate can depend on the certificate program undertaken, but in most cases involves instilling program participants with the foundational knowledge of legal practice and study necessary to succeed in a more advanced law program. This certificate acts as a primer preparing learners for the rigors of highly intensive academic development in degree-level programs. More advanced law studies certificates may also serve to accredit practicing legal professionals.

Students who complete a law studies certificate may gain an advantage in critical career skills. Topmost among those skills is the ability to debate and communicate clearly and in precise terms. Other valuable skills include drafting legal documentation and working effectively with legal and judiciary professionals.

Program costs are generally determined on a basis specific to the university. The length of the program and any materials required may also impact total expenses.

Many who undertake law studies certificate programs go on to practice law as private or corporate attorneys or legal counsel. However, a number of other options are available for those with a completed law studies certificate, including more unorthodox areas many might not consider. For instance, a certificate in law studies can be valuable to an HR manager, who requires extensive knowledge of employment law. Another profession that would derive value from a certificate is a compliance manager, who must know health and safety law.

Many universities offer on-campus programs complemented by online certification programs, allowing students to choose between studying abroad, studying locally, or attending a flexible online program.
