    The third part of the course made me glad that I don't normally represent large corporations, The first two parts were both relevant to things I normally do.

    very good presentation

    I thought the presentation on attorney wellness was not very legal. By contrast, even though I am outside rather than in-house counsel, I thought the third presentation about situations presenting conflicts of interest for in-house lawyers was excellent.
