    Excellent.

    The Course was excellent! I especially enjoyed Judge Keasler in "Ethics for Post-Conviction Lawyers," the session on ineffective assistance of counsel and appellate tips from the experts.

    This was attached as a supplement to the seminar for criminal appeals. Several of these topics had nothing to do with criminal appeals or criminal law in general. I would suggest that next time all of the topics deal with criminal law or appellate procedure/law.

    More criminal topics would be useful in this course for criminal practitioners, but there were a few standout exceptions-- like Katrina Grider's employment law talk.

    nice addition
