“This was the most timely and engaging Law & Ethics course I have ever taken. Knowledgeable presenter and lovely group

“Honestly this far exceeded my expectations. Cathy was very personable and friendly and did a good job of creating group cohesion. This is not easy on Zoom! Also she did an excellent job of making material I usually considering dry + anxiety provoking, interesting and engaging. Also not easy when it comes to law + ethics! I take my hat off to her and would definitely take this course again + recommend it to others…; )”
