  • Daniel Reynolds
    Daniel Reynolds United States of America I just took another course installment in Legal Studies and want to thank The Alison Program for making it possible for an older person like myself to feel empowered that they can still learn and hopefully contribute and give something positive back to their communities and society in a global way. Knowledge is power and thank you Alison for teaching me in a simple and easy yet comprehensive format. I hope to be able to serve my community better as a non profit consultant and grant writer based upon seeing their needs from a variety of perspectives.

    Justin Chuwang Nigeria The course was an instructive insight into the adversarial system of dispute resolution. It has enlightened me about the different systems (inquisitorial and adversarial) and how a marrying of the components of each can improve the other. 2015-07-18 10:07:02
