I liked the speaker, she kept the pace and lecture up beat and moving along. Didn't overkill any particular issue by dwelling on it longer than necessary.

Advanced courses meet the needs for those of us who have done multiple CLE Programs and who have practiced for more than 40 years. I hope you offer more Advanced Programs so we can learn and not just review what we already know. Thank You for offering this quality of learning experience. It is very valuable when advising clients who have a duty to protect personal and other information.
