Some of my favorite courses are the “Recent Developments in... Law”. I enjoy the overview and the interesting information about practice areas that are so important in day to day life, but outside my practice area. Thanks.

Good outline for non-practitioners. Found it an interesting subject, especially the cybersecurity insurance issues. Not a class I'd have selected outside of the CLE bundle, but the speaker was engaging and informative on the subject.

I enjoyed the program.

The GDPR information was VERY valuable. A CLE on that topic and how to become compliant, available apps, and the like would be very helpful. I'll be on the look-out.
