More to the point, though, is that you absolutely don't need to do concentrations within your JD to competitive in whatever field you're aiming for. But for that matter (since it sounds like you want to do family law), you absolutely don't need to get a MSW, either. Lawyers are not social workers and while I can see taking some pertinent classes in the MSW program might be helpful, if you actually want to practice law, having a MSW isn't going to be that helpful. (Or if you want to be a social worker, getting a JD won't be that helpful.) My belief is that you'd be better off spending time that would go to a concentration or a MSW getting practical experience through internships and clinics and law student jobs.
And honestly a certification in advocacy sounds really redundant and unnecessary. Family law I can understand (although no certifications are necessary), but the advocacy one doesn't make much sense at all.
