Great lectures. At first the sound of the mics switching over to pick up the students was annoying but after I got into the discussions I was hooked. Very engaging. I just wish there was more. This such a relevant and ever evolving (often far to slow) law today.
Good detail. Will say I was surprised some of the students weren't able to respond to basic branches of govt tho. Seem scared to answer correctly. Haha
Excellent detail and well presented
Enjoyed it very much. Thank you.
