Excellent presenter. Third CLE I've seen by Ms. Rincker and she is a wealth of good and timely information.
Lawline courses are generally excellent. This was way above that!
Very interesting; very informative
Program relates substantive information on a topic relevant to today's food industry. Presenter begins by defining embryo transfer (ET) in easy-to-understand language, why ET is used and its application to the livestock industry. Next, she shares basic ET contract provisions in an enlightening manner. Helpful transaction example. Program concludes with practical tips for attorneys practicing or wanting to practice in this area.
Very informative and practical.
I took this course out of curiosity, but discovered there are a lot of things to be taken in to account in embryo transfer contracts, and that, indeed, there is more substance to the matter than one might initially think. Very interesting.
