The teacher did a GREAT job of explaining the material!!
Although I am a county assistant prosecuting attorney and not in a county with a border or international airport, I found the case law discussions valuable.
Loved the presenter.

Great course with good, practical advice
Very nicely done - presentation was well organized and nicely structured to flag what someone new to these issues should keep an eye out for. One of the best Lawline presentations I’ve listened to.

Really good speaker on an important and interesting topic
Extremely articulate speaker.
Speaker was excellent. Very knowledgeable and up to date in a very narrow area of law.
Took this more to learn about the area of law, given our current political society. It was very interesting.
I had no idea the warrantless device search power was so broad. Boo to the 11th circuit!
