    Ethics is a hard subject to make entertaining in a conference or on-line, but this was useful enough information, with lots of real-world examples of the cost of "getting it wrong" on clients conflict-of-interests, to hold my attention. A good session.

    found the course very interesting in talking about making sure you don't have to hand over documents to the other side, by understanding who the client is.

    Good session on privilege and conflicts in business situations.
