Really liked the presenter, he was fantastic.
I have already recommended it.
Excellently done presentation. Makes me wish I still practiced criminal law.
One of best presentations I have viewed.
The presentation was very good. Informative and held my attention.
enriching and engaging
If you haven’t done a witness exam lately, this course is an excellent refresher. The anecdotal material is brief, to the point and very helpful.
The instructor was a good communicator, but the material was too basic.
The closed captioning was very helpful, it should be available for all courses
Well done. Interesting material, well-presented, containing practical advice supported by applicable law.
One of the best courses.
His presentation was very thoughtful and thought provoking; I enjoyed it.
