Very interesting topic. It reminds me of the old civil rights days I watched on TV as a kid growing up.
Enthusiasm, commitment, and proficiency to a patriotic cause - you can't beat it! , the definition of advocacy.
Thank you, informative and more fun than a typical CLE
Love this series!
Very knowledgeable instructor. Incredibly easy to follow his line of thought and I did not once lose interest.
Very informative. Presenter was knowledgeable and engaging.
Not an area of law I practice, but an area of interest. This was a great resource and a great presenter. I would love to hear more from this presenter on constitutional law.
You are an inspiring individual. I love your passion and drive for your work and the Constitution.
Great CLE, very informative and practical!
Excellent course, great presenter. And, sadly, a necessary topic for our times.
Thanks for having a presenter who has clearly been in the trenches doing this work.
Loved his passion!
