    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.

    Very well run and helpful, as usual.

    Excellent as always. Well done.

    As usual, an excellent seminar with a great variety of topics and speakers. Thanks for the new topics, especially the former clerks of RBG. Fascinating talk.

    Always great materials, but some of the speakers were a bit weak this year.

    Very enjoyable. Not the biggest fan of the Supreme Court panel, but I never am and it appears they are always going to be present.

    Excellent Presentation of Materials and Arguments
