I often wonder why people decide to become lawyers, but Brandon's was more of a natural progression for a Type A personality who was following his passion for sports. He is knowledgeable, enjoyable to watch and his passion and enjoyment for the practice of law in the professional sports industry comes through in this overview course. Best CLE I've seen with Lexvid yet.
