    Excellent

    I think it would be advisable to offer one or perhaps two lectures which focus on in-depth issues surrounding habeas practice and in particular, if one or two judges from the CCA could participate in the discussion, using actual cases in which they have participated. Of interest would be discussion of how the judges convene and discuss the issues and by what process the decision to grant or deny relief is done.

    Same people year in and year out. There are some like Michael Faulkenberg who should be there every year, but mostly it is the same presenters.

    Excellent! So much practical information for a new appellate attorney.

    Great course!

    The speakers were excellent and I found the information helpful.

    Always a great course. Will attend again!!

    The Committee should seriously consider 1) finding new speakers who can address new subjects; 2) perhaps limiting the number of applicants so that a hands-on approach can be taken to addressing relevant topics for appellate practitioners (much like the federal judiciary does when they host "get togethers" every year) and 3) reduce the number of hours offered in order to cut down on presentations that time-consuming, dull and which cover topics that have been previously covered. But above all, start a serious search for new blood to make the live presentations.

    More judge panels.

    Wonderful speakers. They were well prepared. I appreciated their thoroughness.

    While this course is great, I hope next year you can include a nuts and bolts or maybe beginning course for beginners or to refresh on criminal law.
