The line between continuing professional development and postgraduate study is being blurred by the emergence of ‘micro-credentials’ and the ability to ‘stack’ them to earn credit towards a traditional postgraduate qualification. This paper examines how micro-credentialing and stacking work within the context of legal education, and critically evaluates the emergence of this trend by identifying the significant benefits and challenges. While there is reason to be concerned about the ongoing commodification and vocationalisation of higher education, the conclusion is reached that the development is on balance a positive one.
