Dr. Basi was the best presenter I've seen. These CLE things are often hard to watch. I was surprised at how quickly this one was done, and wanted to hear more. That's a rare thing. I never comment either. I did here, because this man really knows how to present rather dull material in a way that doesn't make it dull. Kudos.

best lawline presenter

Lee H.

Good insights into recognizing that there are different accounting methodologies!!! Having said that, it still takes some doing to really understand accounting differences--cash v accrual etc!!! Court provides a heads-up but more is required to really understand and apply the different accounting methods!!!
