One of the best programs on lawline. The attorney was excellent in communicating the material.
Love Ms. Rincker’s Agriculture CLE’s - being an ag student both in high school and in college, it’s great to come back to these topics in another light.
I enjoyed Cari's enthusiasm and her delivery style--she smiles, speaks clearly and not too fast.
