allgoodThe Financial Literacy for Lawyers course was extremely well done: the instructor, content and technology were all first-rate. I was very impressed with the online format as a teaching method.
The content level was appropriate for students without prior financial background and deftly explored its themes, demonstrating relevance for the practice of law and the business of lawyers. In my view this would be an extremely useful course for any law student – no matter which area of law may be their focus.
