Rich in content - The courses were rich in content, applicable in everyday life and the technology was user friendly. The videos were quite interactive. The illustrations were wonderful, and the backend help from Professor Campbell was spot on at all times. I am immediately putting the knowledge acquired to use as new international opportunities are beginning to open up for my firm. Dorathy Achumba, Nigeria Practical, useful, and informative - The online classes were so practical, useful, and informative. Moreover, we had the freedom to juggle our careers and courses due to the flexibility of study, Plus, it helped us to reduce the costs of our LL.M. programs, expenses such as travel and accommodation. Sara Moaddeli and Mohammad Fallahsefat, Iran Truly engaging - I can give you feedback now and that is WOW. It is educational and practical. For the initial three modules, there were several "ah-ha" light-bulbs-going-off moments. The use of video recordings makes it truly engaging. Not to mention the volumes of materials to prepare myself as fundamental rudiments of the respective subjects. 5/5 definitely. Timothy Koh, Singapore Content is substantial - The course introduces the main content of how to apply for recognition and enforcement of foreign court judgments. The content is substantial and not boring and can fully attract attention. Yaying Wu, China
