4.5 out of 5 stars
What was the overall quality of the course (presentation, materials, and technical delivery)?
Rate the overall teaching effectiveness and presentation skills of faculty for the course.
How would you rate the value of the materials provided as part of the course?

The course was great and it was practical. I would suggest adding something in the Title like "fundamental" because it was a little more basic than I expected. Nonetheless informative

I found this eConference to be extraordinarily helpful, especially as I am new to immigration law and currently work at a nonprofit that specializes in asylum and removal defense.
