    Excellent

    Presentations were very well done - truly a cut above typical CLE. And I was surprised this "grab bag" of courses had more relevance to my practice than I expected. Well done!

    Very interesting and timely discussions concerning cyber security.

    Character evidence has always been difficult for me to understand. I found this course to be very useful.

    Would have liked more graphics and real world examples -- the rules by themselves and speaking abstractly is difficult to conceptualize in the Evidence context.
