Comments from past participants include:

  • Particularly enjoyed when an attorney chose a side and presented issues from his/her perspective.
  • Explained in layman’s terms. Especially classes on criminal law.
  • Found presentation of actual cases to be most interesting.
  • All speakers were knowledgeable. It covered a wide variety of basic information in many areas of law—very useful now and in the future.
  • The program was well presented and presented a lot of information. As a result I have a different view of justice versus law.
