Fantastic course. Love it.
Very interesting and well done.
The faculty did a very nice presentation. I liked the way they alternated with each other and discussed whether they agreed or disagreed with each other's points or theories. It made it more interesting than a standard presentation with one or two people speaking directly to you.
Great program. The presenters were both very knowledgeable and dynamic. It is the best CLE on lawline thus far.
This was interesting from an intellectual perspective - brought me back to my law school days! Interesting for purposes of the mental exercise in thinking of how SCOTUS will rule and very well-presented.
Excellent and very interesting
These presenters are engaging and informative. Excellent job!
I really enjoyed the presenters actually talking through both sides of the cases. Well worth the extra time to actually dig into them. Hopefully there will be a follow-up after the decisions are rendered.
I love how the two presenters discuss the cases together. So insightful.
RECOMMEND THESE PRESENTERS AND THIS PROGRAM 100%.
I always enjoy the SCOTUS Preview classes by these presenters.
