    Kazeem Adeola Onifade Nigeria The course was really inspiring, educating and a big eye opener to a law abiding citizen like me, who barely knows his right and how to express the fundamentals of a state law which comprises of majorly the Criminal and Civil law as been taught here.

  • Michelle Torpy
    Michelle Torpy United States of America It was a very enlightening course in bringing me up to date on the changes in some of the laws. Now, if I could get the recognition that I passed the test with a 90% missing only 3 questions it would be great and give me the feeling to continue on my goal of continuing my education. Thank you for helping me get to my goal. :):):):) Michelle Torpy 2015-08-27 08:08:44
