One of the best, most informative Lawline courses I've watched.
Very insightful course and an excellent instructor.
Information I needed and can use.
Very important and relevant presentation focused on ethics in the discovery process where social media is involved. Although the examples are generally from family law cases, the principles carry over to many other areas of civil litigation. Remember those litigation hold letters! The presenter was excellent.
