Excellent. The best CLE I have seen in years. She knows her stuff, and the visuals of the Warrant and Summons were extremely useful in the way she presented those sections.

These nuts and bolts courses are my personal favorites. They really help fill in the gaps between law school (and other CLEs and professional reading) and the courtroom.
