Certificate programs are probably not too valuable in themselves, but sometimes there are special internships (or hiring contacts) available for certificate program students. The communications law and securities law certificate students at my school seemed to have an inside track into internships at the FCC and SEC, respectively.  I would guess the highly technical certificates covering administrative subjects like tax, securities, and communications would be more valuable than a more generalist certificate program for something like international law.

That seemed like the one pro to the certificate programs all the clinical programs at least the practical ones i.e. real estate law, employment law,  & criminal law offered placements.  I think I am going to do it
