How would you rate the value of the materials provided as part of the course?

excellent as always

Informative and timely presentations. I only wish the tropical storm had not caused rescheduling of the program, especially since my partner and I flew from California and had already checked into the hotel when we received notice.

Technical issue on e-conference controls: The "rewind" icon did not work on some of the courses. Instead of allowing me to rewind, it interpreted my click as a request to fast forward. This ability to rewind is very helpful; however, it was not always available.

Most of the sessions were well organized and very informative especially "recent developments" "admiralty practice" and "naval collisions.'One section in particular was boring called "greed." The egotistic speaker only talked about himself and addressed virtually no admiralty law topics.

Excellent, per usual. Informative and engaging.

i got the audio but not the video - would be nice to have video

David W. Robertson's Last Case (Jan 2020)

The last case that Professor Robertson argued before his death was Batterton v. Dutra Group in the Ninth Circuit. That court held that an injured seaman may seek punitive damages in a general maritime law action for unseaworthiness. Three weeks before Professor Robertson died, the Supreme Court granted cert to review that judgment. Professor Sturley will discuss and analyze the Supreme Court’s decision reversing the Ninth Circuit.
