Pretty good class. Good info on a subject that affects everybody, not just the English

It was an amazing course. The videos taught a lot but the tests also inspired critical thinking while I was answering them. The videos were the base to what was in the tests but it wasn't a literal test of the videos, instead how to apply the knowledge and principles learned in real cases or by analyzing law. It was really good and I enjoyed it a lot. Thank you.

I recommend this course to everyone who wants to apply for a bachelor's in law or everyone whose job is related to common law.

I love this course. I am currently learning about the differences between civil and continental law, and this course fills up the holes in my knowledge quite well. I passed the half of the course so far and we'll se how it goes on. So far so good!
