Well done fellas. So I guess they are going to hear none of it! I might have to watch again. Keep em coming!
- Richard H.
The written material could have been more thorough. Ideally it should match if not provide more than the audio presentation. But I appreciated the vast knowledge in this presentation.
- Neeraj J.
The instructor presumes that the student follows Constitutional Law to the same depth that he does and this his references to other cases are at too high a level. The course is good when he speaks of a case that is within the scope of your own practice. The fault may be on this student as the issues discussed do not come up in my daily practice.
- Joseph S.
Very informative and helpful!
- laura p.
Excellent review! I come back every year.

I did not appreciate the presenter giving his own very biased political opinion regarding certain Justices, he needs to stick to the topic and quit the politics because there is too much of that crap right now.

Focus on employment law early on was really a change of subject matter. Part II was closer to the mark. Speaker was very informed and knowledgeable but appeared to tire as he approached the end of the seminar.

This course was focused almost exclusively on employment law. The title to the course should reflect that focus
