This was one of my favorite courses. Everyone was very knowledgeable and the information was presented very clearly.

Great information and well presented in this module. However, I think it was repetitive at times, and could be shortened. This was particularly so with respect to the first 30 minutes that defines the scope of the attorney client privilege.

I would have appreciated seeing an example of a "categorical privilege log."

It was somewhat informative, but the amount of jargon greatly detracted from its value. I also have to agree with Nels that it was very repetitive and could have been half as long. Also, to have such a long portion of the video on a fed rule is not as valuable to a largely admin law agency.

I found all of the courses informative and extremely helpful. It certainly gave me a different way of looking at discovery initially and in the big picture. The printed information in the videos should be closely reviewed as there are several typos.

While this class contains much valuable information, it is too long and repetitive and could benefit from editing for length and brevity.

One of the best courses in the series, from both legal and practical standpoints.
