The Family Law certificate shows employers that the recipient has a good understanding of basic Family Law principles and has actively applied those principles in Family Law cases while still in law school. Since Family Law is a unique legal area, often using principles that are different from other areas of the law, this certificate proves to an employer that the recipient is ready and able to take on cases in the Family Law arena. Some states may also allow the certificate to be used to meet their requirements for Guardian ad litem training.
