Comments from the 2020 Immigration Removal Proceedings Live Webcast

Very educational and informative. Thanks

For a "basics" course, the 4 presenters did a fantastic job of filling in knowledge gaps with the most recent case law. A really helpful presentation even for veterans.

Technical difficulties interrupted the flow quite a bit, but I think it will sort itself out in future presentations.

Some important cases were mentioned without citation.

The overall quality was affected by the technical difficulties that arose, but otherwise very very good.
