Mr Strecklow was knowledgeable, succinct, explained things simply, and in an engaging manner.
Loved the presentation.
This presenter was excellent, and I would like to have more programs on this subject with updates from jurisdictions across the United States.
Wylie knows his stuff, hands down.
Thought his "real world" analysis was super interesting about how the criminal cases might affect clients in their lives, etc. I would have loved to learn about OTHER states than New York, but at least now I know where to start researching.
most enjoyable presentation
Terrific, well-informed, passionate presenter.
Great course. After 53 years of practicing criminal law learned some new things about protest law. Great tips for new lawyers about dealing with court clerks and officers.
Great program. The issues surrounding the George Floyd protest brought me here.
Very knowledgeable speaker
Fantastic! Way more than protesting--a nice refresher on how to deal with arraignments, court personnel, etc. Thank you!!

This course made me cry to know that someone is out there doing this work and is so knowledgeable because people are protesting.

Wow! This was one of the most inspiring CLEs I've seen. Really enjoyed the lecturer!

I have recommended the course to a colleague in NY.
very practical, to the point and helpful
I learned several things that I did not know about protesting. I was unaware that you did not need a permit to protest on the sidewalk. This information is very helpful and I work across from the capital in Raleigh, NC and I observed protesters all the time.
That was great, thanks!
Very good explanation of area in which I am not familiar. Thank you
One of the best courses I've attended--kudos!
